A good story, but told through a writing style that didn't connect with me. Since leaving high school I've found some poetry that I've really fallen in love with, but this was a strong reminder of why I thought poetry wasn't for me when I was a student. I could have overlooked that, though, had I felt more emotional engagement with Emily; but I just didn't get the visceral sense of her trauma that I should have. That said, I think the right audience will truly love this one and there are definitely readers for it. Abstractly introspective, artistic, sad, and poetic.

Emily hasn't told any of the girls at her new school the reason she transferred there so suddenly -- that her ex-boyfriend had committed suicide.
