it was amazing
bookshelves: teen
Read in April, 2009

The topic - a dying teen - would not normally catch my interest, however this book is so well-written, I can't put it down. The dialogue and characterization are so "right on" that you feel connected to the characters from page one. This is a book definitely for older teens 9th grade and up because of graphic passages about sex, drugs, dying...
I can't say enough about this book - and no wonder. Now that I've actually read reviews and author interviews, I've discovered she's a first-time wonder - already published in 10 languages and grabbed up by a publisher the moment it hit his desk.
