Mayra's Reviews > Free Verse
Although this book has been compared to Walk Two Moons (which I liked and will re-read despite its few negative reviews ), I found Sarah Dooley went way deeper in Free Verse than Sharon Creech in Walk Two Moons. Deeper look at life in the mining towns and mining jobs, deeper hopelessness after loss and the threat of more, deeper displays of losing control and waking up to it, altogether a book deep as a mine with crumbling moments and rescuing sighs from the reader when the plot went this or that way. The poetry was a bonus, and beautiful it was. Loved it and will share with all who listen when I recommend yet another book that must be read.
