This book mingled the lives of the poets of Romanticism--Keats, Byron and Shelley--and remade them into modern-day highschool students. The writing was good, but I never wanted to know that much about their lives. Lots of abuse, mainly of the sexual sort, and every variety of that.

Please understand that this is a personal reaction, not literary criticism. I am sure that there will be many readers who have no problem with the actions and situations depicted in this book, but I'm not one of them. In fact, the only reason I finished skimming the book was because I received it through an ARC sharing blog, and I agree to review all the books I sign up for. I won't be recommending this book to anyone, but I doubt the people that come to me for book reviews will feel they've missed out. *Shrugs* That's just how it goes.
