I feel like I need a bath. I am not sure why the author chose to write the book in verse form - a complete waste of time as it does absolutely nothing to enhance the action, characterization, etc. Readers will struggle to find an original idea in this piece of dreck that panders to every stereotype under the sun ... not to mention the relentless consumerism that sucks the life out of our middle-class students. I think we can offer more to young people than this. I think they deserve more. Imagine an article from Seventeen magazine written as pseudo poetry and you can save yourself the time (not long) that it would have taken to read this. The water isn't hot enough! More soap!
