Mandiann (goodreadscommandiann) | 7497 comments I didn't realize it was verse. The cover caught my eye. Excited for it!!

Trisha | 31440 comments I'm going to kick it out a week, to 9/11

I hope that works for you Megan. Let me know if there are any issues!! Or we can just check in around the 11th and see if everyone has their copy!

Megan | 52 comments Sorry I've been missing these last couple days!

Spotty wifi and Netflix got in the way of any actual reading at the start of the week!

The eleventh actually works great for me because there's only three copies in circulation in my library district so it's been slow moving getting it.

Excited to start, and glad to have so many buddies to discuss with!

Mandiann (goodreadscommandiann) | 7497 comments Finally go my book. Anyone still up for this?

Trisha | 31440 comments Yes, I'm starting now too :)

Mandiann (goodreadscommandiann) | 7497 comments I won't be able to start until tomorrow.

Trisha | 31440 comments so...I read it today

sorry I didn't update. I was waiting at a parade and just kind of...blasted through it

I think maybe I was in the wrong mindset or...maybe wrong place (in a huge, raining parking area with Girl Scouts waiting to throw candy in a parade :D) - this one just did not connect with me.

but I"m really interested to see what you think Mandiann!! I hope you like it more than I did!

Mandiann (goodreadscommandiann) | 7497 comments Wow, okay. I am sorry you didn`t enjoy it. Well I still havent started. Work/life has left little time for reading. Will try to get to it soon.

So far I have been unimpressed with verse books I have tried so my hopes aren't high. If it weren't for the cover, I doubt I would have picked this one at all.

Trisha | 31440 comments I know, the cover is gorgeous
and the topic is really touching and a great addition to subject matter that maybe doesn't get tackled in YA enough.

ugh, I hate that I didn't love it.....

I usually love verse books... Yikes. well, if you don't get time anytime soon, no worries. I'll be here when you get to it :)

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments I'm sorry you didn't like it, Trisha. Bummer!
