Debbie | 14 comments David Levithan did one of the Pep Talks for Nanowrimo last year and I loved his way with words. I have been meaning to read one of his books, so I was glad to see this on the Hub list. I'll read it as soon as the library gets it back on the shelf.

Ariel Birdoff (madam_pince) | 19 comments David Levithan's words are poetry. I get the feeling that he crafted each sentence as he would verse. I loved the feeling and the story of this book.

Devera Chandler (developyourya) | 32 comments I understand that this book is loved by so many readers. For me, the poetic tendencies sometimes bordered on tedious and a little too drawn out. (I know, you are all gasping in dismay.). Honestly, I loved the voices and stories of those who had passed, who couldn't experience what teens these days can, and I love the book for pointing that out and reminding teens of how fortunate they can be. I am just saying that sometimes the voices could have been more in the background of the book instead of the forefront.

Debbie | 14 comments This was beautiful. I finished it late last night and haven't been able to write a review yet. Hands-down, the best of the challenge so far. I want to give it to everyone I know. This is the kind of book that could save a life.
