did not like it
Read in December, 2011

I feel bad not liking this book since I had it on my Amazon wishlist since last Christmas and my son's girlfriend was sweet enough to buy it for me. It gets FANTASTIC reviews on Amazon and while reading some of the reviews I know why it ended up on my wishlist because it gets recommended to people who liked The Glass Castle and other similar books. It is a very dark book. Kids with scary issues that never get resolved...It is a collection of short stories about the tragic life of teenagers living in New York. It is like watching a car crash and no one ever comes to help. I guess I am more of a happily ever after person even though I know that can't always be the case. Thank God I had the physical book (not a Nook book) because I needed to flip back A LOT to make sense of this tragic teen story. On a Nook, I probably would not have finished reading it.
