it was ok
bookshelves: never-finished, 2011-12, really-bad, meh, realistic

My aunt recommended this book to me, so I really felt that I HAD to enjoy it. But I just couldn't finish it. The main issue was that there was no true storyline. I got about three quarters of the way through the book and it still felt like I was reading exposition. Though the author was trying to put a fresh spin on a teenage POV, but all I heard was 'this happened, then that happened...' etc. Everything was told, not shown. There are some books that can pull off not having figurative language or imagery, but this IS NOT one of them. The characters, even the protagonist, were flat and boring. I understand that the book portrays France's racial divides, and I can respect that. But from a purely literary point of view, this book left a lot to be desired.
