Gave up on page 168. The one page journal style felt choppy and I could never remember which character's point of view I was reading. ( )

Written in verse, similar to Ellen Hopkins books. Two characters alternate chapters until their lives collide. There are little hints along the way, but it is still interesting how they're woven together. Girls will enjoy getting inside the thoughts of other girls with typical situations and feelings, and maybe see the bigger picture in handling relationships. ( )

The cover caught my attention on this one. Well, the cover and the title itself. I'd seen several reviews for it, and they all led me to believe it'd be a cute, easy summer read. That part is definitely true - what they did not tell me was that it's a novel in verse.

The basic premise is that the book follows two girls, who do not meet or technically know each other. I say technically, because their stories overlap. Drastically. Dramatically.

Each girl is allowed to tell her own story ... Camille writes in free-verse, almost stream-of-consciousness, but in third person. It allows for a singular perspective: you're getting to see inside her - as much as she allows herself to look inward, anyway - but you also get to see the dynamics of her world. Becca writes in a variety of poetic forms ... from tributes to Browning and Williams to a very cleverly done villanelle.

Overall, I think the form works - I just wish I'd had a little forewarning. I was caught blindsided and was therefore a wee bit confused. That quickly dissipated, it just took a moment or two of adjusting. ( )

Two narrators, both high school senior girls, written in poetry and prose. Becca (written in poetry) has a boyfriend named Alec who she finds out was kissing another girl. That girl was Camille (written in prose), who has moved around her entire life and has always had to leave people behind. She is having trouble getting over a boy in Chicago. Becca has to take a job in a coffee shop where she runs into Camille, realizing she is the one Alec kissed. Becca’s poetry copies the styles of her favorite poets. ( )
