This one is really hard to rate. In terms of writing, it's brilliant. The language is lyrical and beautiful, pulling you in to give you a full sensory experience. On the other hand, the story was... I don't know. It really didn't speak to me, and I doubt many of the teens I work with will be able to connect with it. It's being marketed as a YA novel (which is where it's cataloged in my library), but I really see it appealing more to an older crowd.
