it was ok
bookshelves: young-adult
Read in April, 2009

Chose this to read with my 10th grade remedial English students. Got alot of mixed reviews with them so far. The story is decent for high school kids who hate to read, but I could not get over how cheestastic the dialogue. Sounds so unnatural and artificial. How did this win an award?

This book avoided the dreaded 1 star because I, somehow, actually felt bad at the end. Spoiler?
