I discovered that the book is written in an unusual manner. It is sort of a free flowing poetry that is almost like a diary or an assignment from an English class in high school. That wasn't working, so I took out the CD's and started listening to them.
I was impressed by the reader, who captured the nuances of the characters quite well. The story flowed more easily than when I tried to read it and I was able to dig in and really get into the story...so much so that I almost missed picking up my wife at the airport terminal.
The story is dark about a family that is quite dysfunctional. There is graphic language, and the content can be rather raw, but there is nothing here that you won't hear or hear about on any high school campus in the country. It is well written, captivating and shines an interesting light on the subjects (incest, cutting, drugs) that it deals with.
I recommend it in audio form, but would have trouble recommending the written form. I'm not sure how many teens would wade through the free flowing verse
