There were things I really liked about this one. I love free verse, and I know this will have a lot of appeal for a lot of teens who love free verse too. It was just a bit too preachy for me. It made me feel, oh I don't know...squirmy at times. And, although I felt it was obvious that Mom was sick--Zach's problems probably came from somewhere, after all--didn't anyone think to try and get her some help? It just felt weird that she had such an abrupt turnaround and no one really did anything about it. And prayer was the only option anyone seemed to think appropriate. I wanted to medicate the heck out of her! Oh, well.
