This book was very bizarre, but very interesting. I'm not sure how much I actually liked the book, but it definitely kept me engaged while I was reading it. The frustrating part of the book was, I think, purposeful: the unnamed boys who are recounting the Lisbon girls' lives never really find out why the girls killed themselves, at least not completely. What also irritated me was that I felt I did not get to know all 5 of the Lisbon girls, who we learned most about were Cecilia and Lux. Again, I think this was the author showing how little the neighborhood boys new of the girls, but nonetheless I would've liked to learn more about them. Besides those things, the book was pretty good.
