Resources for this book
I would not usually choose a book written in verse, but I couldn’t resist the cover of this one. I found it an easy read and the story flowed smoothly. I thoroughly enjoyed the insight into experiences so different from mine own. The mix of thought and spoken word was breathtaking. Highly recommend!
I didn’t like this book as I felt it was a bit above my age range and was a little inappropriate. I wouldn’t recommend this book.
