Alex is reevaluating his life right now, he's very lost and unsure of where his life is headed ever since his cousin moved on.
This scene opens the book:
I was free.
For the first time since I’d turned six, I was free and I didn’t know what to do with it.
Grabbing my skull, I played with the piece of paper in my pocket and just stood there. Feeling like I was standing at the proverbial crossroads. I was empty.
Just a great big fucking ball of nothing.
There wasn’t even any noise in my head to distract me. Hot chicks couldn’t do it, nothing could, so I’d taken a year off school because I couldn’t focus, just sitting around while my life moved on without me.
