I liked this book

Review by Petra

I enjoyed the way this book used two voices in a way that made it seem easy and clear who’s voice way who’s but was not disjointed. I would lend it to a kid who likes contemporary fiction.

Very Good Book

Review by unithegreat

I really enjoy how this book is written in two different people's perspectives, and how half of the chapters are written in poetry. I also liked how it is kind of serendipitous that if it hadn't been for a bike crash then they wouldn't have become friends. Really great book you should read it!

Review by bookchat

I liked EVERYTHING in this book but Guillermo's poems (a few of them) are hard for me to understand.

Review by TerrificTT

I like this book because it is a first person view and I nether heard of break dancing.
