The main character is young North, a kid who’s qualities should make anyone appreciate him. But his parents never notice his good grades, great batting average, etc. North feels that his parents don’t deserve him, so he goes to court and wins “free agency.” North then embarks on a ridiculous search for the “perfect” parents.
“North” does not offer a quality reading experience. It’s has an exaggerated quality that gives it the feeling of a cheap movie, and the book’s plot is lacking in both substance and delivery. If you want to read something that is interesting and worthwhile, then “North” is not the book for you.
