Rats Saw God is by Rob Thomas, the creator of Veronica Mars. Before he was a TV writer, he was a journalism teacher and wrote young adult novels. This book, Thomas' first, is the story of Steve, who must write a 100 page essay about his life. Through recounting his parents divorce and his relationship with his first girlfriend, Wanda "Dub" Varner, Steve eventually comes to more awareness about himself and the realities of life. Like Veronica Mars, the book has great characters and dialogue and I think most Veronica fans will like it a lot.
