This SciFi (no space operas) book is written like a log, so it makes sense to publish it as a blog. The entries are in reverse order, so don't read the ending first. the theme is about a retarded boy who undergoes a surgery to increase his IQ to genius level, who logs the changes day after day. Very touching.

Really good, read it in 7th grade. I was the only one really touched I believe though. I would love to have the surgery though. Kiss the sky once.
