“I got to thinking that poems were like people. Some people you got right off the bat. Some people you just didn’t get – and never would get.”
If one one would take this book as a person or as a poem in the way the hero understood in the quote, then it is a book easy to “get”, but sometimes the teenage frustration with the change from child to an adult can be hard to bear.
I do not want to give away what happens, so this makes the book impossible to review, rather I would like to talk with people, who , have already read it: what worked for them? What was hard to take, irritating? What did they think the writer did best?
