Short snappy verse novel. TW for eating disorders and abuse.

I really have to stop reading modern poetry. I find that the style is the same with every poet and the stories run together and do not stay with me. I think this book touches one some very important topics and I think I really would have enjoyed it if it was not in verse. I think it would have done better as a solid story. I would have enjoyed it more that way. It isn’t a bad book; the format ruins the story. If it had been done as a regular book it probably could have gotten five stars.

As someone who is not usually a fan of verse poetry novels, I was surprised at how engaged I was with this one. I devoured it in one sitting, wanting to know the characters more and see how it ended.

You and Me and Misery is a hi-low novel in verse, told in alternating perspectives. The book touches on bulimia, grief, and struggling with identity. The novel handles difficult subjects with appropriate sensitivity, but I lacked connection with the characters.
