I have very mixed feelings about this. I enjoyed the character. I liked the diversity. Gabi, being a fat Mexican girl was refreshing.
This deals with a lot of difficult topics in life, teenage pregnancy, rape, overdoses, sex, etc. Many teens will probably relate to them,.
I dunno, I just felt like it was almost too preachy for me to enjoy? I get it, these topics need to be talked about. But that's what it felt like this book was doing. Just preaching tough choices and tough teen issues. I wanted more.
I enjoyed the poetry throughout the book. Its not terrible, just not a favorite of mine. I'd probably recommend it if you love YA contemporary. Chances are you will enjoy this one.
