Very interesting young adult book about Charles Manson. I just didn't like the execution of the novel. This book is written in verse and very disjointed and repetative. You read a sentence and lo and behold, the next sentence is identical or close to it! I understand this particular style was done on purpose, but man it sure did make me crazy.

There was something missing from this book for me and I can't figure out what it is. Even thought it was a fast read and quite interesting fictional account about a crazy point in history, I didn't love it.
