It took me forever to read this book because it is just so depressing. Hopkins is a great writer. All of her characters have consistent, believable voice. Unfortunately, all of these teens turn to prostitution to survive or they are manipulated into it. Knowing all of them are going down that path made it hard to get through. I think I'm done with Ellen Hopkins. She is a great writer, but her content is just too harsh to take on more than one occasion.
