it was amazing
Read in July, 2011

I read part of this book standing up. So into it I couldn't sit. David Levithan has done it again. I didn't like the original book by Charles Dickens. The movie was great. The text, ah not so much. He's not my favorite author, but I respect Dickens' talent.

This was a classy remix. I wouldn't have thought a book could be remixed, but he did that. (He said so in the author's notes.) It sounds corny, but the book made me want to be a better person. It was odd because so much is happening in my life now and you can easily get sucked up into the sadness and awfulness of hardships in life. This book teaches you that it's okay to grieve, but it's okay to live too.

I adore David Levithan. I really do. I'm glad I finally picked up this book. I was initially turned off by the ghost themes since I'm a "scardy cat" but I'm glad I picked it up last week. It came at the right time for me.
