If I could describe this book in one word...

Lou Bertignac is a 13 year old sophmore who doesn't really have any friends. She lives in France. One day she meets No, a homeless girl, and asks to interview her for her school project. Eventually she asks her parents to let No move in with them.

Allow me to repeat myself:
Slow. Slow death...
The writing drove me crazy. It is stilted and annoying and unclear. And I seriously wanted to go hit someone. But it was also alluring. I couldn't put it down.

Lou irriated me. I wanted to smack No. And Lucas, the 17 year old sophmore, also made me mad. I couldn't figure out if he was hitting on the 13 year old or just felt bad for her.
It was just a weird, depressing, disturbing book. The French people, culture...characters, drove me crazy.
In some ways it was a unique and interesting. But I also have the urge to go scrub my brain.
Several f-bombs and general swearing.
I'm so glad to be done with it.
