AGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG! Ellen Hopkins needs an EDITOR! She is a really gifted writer. The verse style of her novels is intriguing and effective. She doesn't condescend to her audience and deals with complex issues honestly. But, and I have read a few too many of her books now, she runs out of steam about 2/3 of the way through and then it feels like being dragged with the most cliched teen-angst gumbo ever. Her books are just too long and always disappointing. PLEASE SOMEONE GET ELLEN HOPKINS AN EDITOR AND TEACH HER HOW TO FINISH A BOOK AS STRONG AS SHE STARTS THEM.
