it was amazing

One of my top picks for the year. I am NOT a fan of the verse novel...but two of my top picks this year were just that. This is probably a close second to "Inside Out and Back Again." The poems here were all fantastic. The voice never faltered. I literally laughed out loud and cried a couple times. If you are an adult and you have forgotten what it is like to be a headstrong, smart adolescent (if you ever were one) read this book and you will get an exacting portrait of Addie.

Easily one of the best books of the year.

“Another Thing I'm Sick of Hearing:

If I started that gay rights group,
I must be gay.

So if i start an animal rights group,
what does that make me?

A giraffe?”

Sue Sounds like one I should check out. (though I was smart, I don't know that I was headstrong)
