If you are coming into this book with no prior ROBLOX Lua knowledge, then you might find the book a little difficult. The whole point of the book is to teach ROBLOX Lua at an intermediate level. Intermediate means that it is in between basic and advanced. Every chapter in this book flows in some way or another. Tutorials have a corresponding explanation chapter. An explanation chapter will discuss the point of a tutorial and explain the topics that were covered. By the time you have completed this book you should be quite fluent with ROBLOX Lua. You should not expect to know the advanced topics and parts of ROBLOX Lua, but you should be familiar with a lot of the language. With your knowledge of the language you should now be able to make games that can start to compete and earn their way up on the ROBLOX gaming charts.

"Still reeling from the suicide of his best friend Tess, seventeen-year old Brendan struggles to overcome addiction and identity issues. Walking the ledge outside his Manhattan apartment has become its own sort of drug, as he stands night after night with his arms outstretched, ready to fly away. Sarah can see him from her window, and begins journaling about a boy on a ledge. Paige and Nate, a young couple in another building, can see both teens from their fire escape. None of them know the others are watching, but a strong desire for freedom resides in each of them, and as their lives begin to intertwine, that desire will be tested. Anyone can jump, but not everyone can fly ... Sharp, humorous, and deeply layered, this chronicle of a suicidal teen's survival explores the reality of addiction and other tough issues, but does so easily, through the use of multiple perspectives, intelligent dialogue and authentic characters. Equal parts romance, contemporary drama, and coming of age, this highly engaging and intensely beautiful novel challenges our cultural perceptions in the battle for balance"
