As a work written in verse the main characters voice comes through clearly and creates a powerful impact on the reader. The incoherence of some passages seem to relate directly back to the character's own state of mind, and despite being written in verse the book is an easy read.

For YA audiences I imagine the subject matter would be familiar and inviting though I wonder if the work would be selected without recommendation by teachers or librarians. The difficulty that arises from this particular work is the time lapses make it a chore to follow certain aspects of the work throughout the whole narrative.

However, I would greatly encourage reading this book as it highlights sentiment and creates a powerful emotional appeal though ultimately nothing is resolved, and nothing feels real about the work itself. Instead, the verse format has created a dream-like format. ( )
