HOLY EFFING CRAP, DE LA PENA.

So I know I'm not unusual--checking out other reviews here--for not loving this right away. It took me FOREVS to really get going. But once I did, I was sucked in, and I was racing to see just how bad things got.

BUT THEN THE ENDING BLEW MY EFFING MIND WHAT. WHAT!

I love the main characters in de la Pena's books. He is so great at piecing together vulnerability and anger and fear and hope. In this book there's so many heartbreaking moments--with the book's structure and chronology it's impossible to enjoy even the good moments. But, still, the good moments are so beautiful and innocent regardless. There's so much humanity here.

Anji i <3 this book so much! and i couldn't agree more about the characters. once i figured out where this one was headed, i was kinda anticipating the ending to suck- but he pulled it off beautifully. great minds, grrrrlie <3


laaaaames I NEVER figured out where it was headed, which was great, because it's really hard to surprise me in books. Also loved that de la Pena didn't even give us an easy clear reveal.
