I had a hard time deciding on stars for this one. Sometimes is was four, other times it was two. I think the story line is good--a page-turner for me. But I was so bugged by the unintelligent use of so much profanity and sexual content. It was just stupid. I could relate to the mother/wife, but that relation made me feel guilty as a parent.
EDIT: My copy finally arrived! Yayyy! Getting on to it right now! The way its going, I dont think it's gonna take long for me to devour this one! I would kill to get this book right now!! Why, oh why, did the date of release have to be changed?? A whole month too....oh well, at least it'll make a good birthday present, even if late.
It is fun to read and great to develop a love of poetry, especially in children.
I read this for school and it was ok. It wasn't my favorite by far, but I did learn from it, and it made it more important had I not learned anything at all. I did not like the terribly sad ending though.
