I finally finished this last night. I'm in the dark as to what to say about Margaux With an X. I think it's a good possibility that because I had so much going on when I was in the beginning of the book it really affected my reading.
I think I liked Margaux and I'm pretty sure I liked danny. I liked their relationship - it was different and Koertge portrayed that it's okay to go against the norm with that. You probably couldn't find a high school anywhere in America where a girl like Margaux and a guy like Danny find each other and let the relationship take off. I enjoyed that part a lot.
I think I would have prefered to know Margaux's secret sooner. That may be only because I read a lot of mis-lit and in those books the abuse is well known and known right in the beginning in most cases. Even though this is a totally different book that carried over for me I think. Instead of suspense I just felt impatience.
I am going to add two others books advertised in the back of this book though - it's obvious Koertge knows what he's doing with a pen and I'd like to try another.... hopefully at a time when my life isn't going crazy. :)

bjneary I liked this book and I am a Ron Koertge fan too!

Eva Leger Oh good! I just read a book I wasn't liking much so I'm really hoping this is better. That gives me hope because I find so many YA books from your updates so I know my taste in that genre is similiar to yours. Thanks for telling me!
