By Ellen Hopkins.
Written as if it were poetry, in verse, but it's not. It's prose hidden in verse form. Not very many words to a page - 666 to the book. Is she trying to be funny with the numbering? I read it between 2 p.m. & 6 p.m. on Sunday (in between cooking on the grill, etc. Very easy read). My son read it and really liked it so I told him I would read it.
The story deals with 3 different teens with very different backgrounds, and their 3 failed suicide attempts, which land them in a medical facility, where they meet.
Man, can we get teen-angtsy enough? Seriously. Don't give this book to a very emotional child, cause...man. Sadness. Angsty sadness.
