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.

It’s ok

Review by pinkart2020

I read this book and once I started reading it, it wasn’t that good. It doesn’t really make sense because there’s like poems or something and just doesn’t make sense. I thought it was going to be a real story and not a bunch of poems. I recommend it only if your a type of person who likes to read a bunch of poetry.
