A Verse Novel for Young Adults, with Depth

Jinx - Margaret Wild

I really enjoyed this book. It took me less than two hours to read as it is a story connected by a series of poems about a teenage girl, her family and friends, and the heart-ache that comes with growing up.

Wild uses several points of view in this novel and touches on issues of depression, broken homes, life as a teenager, life as an adult with kids, death, disability, truth, self-destruction, sexuality, single parents and more....

Definitely worth a read for something different. 4 Stars.
