This book was amazing. As a high school teacher, I found it helped me to have an insight to the minds of teens dealing with suicide and depression. Beautifully written. It will keep you up late turning the pages.
I couldn't put this book down. Just like the rest of Ellen Hopkins books, it was breath taking, a story for young adults and older, about the hardships many people would never even imagine. Her writing is magical, each page its own chapter, all the words coming together to form a shape of its own. A beautiful book...
Not my most favorite Hopkins' book but I still thoroughly enjoyed this. If I were to rank, in order, I'd put the Kristina books first, Tricks second, and the rest third.
There is no book by Ellen Hopkins not worth reading IMO. I truly think she has talent seeping from her pores. I'm so thankful I found her books when I did and that I've been able to keep up with the new releases. So many works degrade with time and this is not the case with Hopkins'. While some other authors claim to bring better and better novels to the table without actually coming through, Hopkins' doesn't talk it - she brings it.
