I was really happy with the first say 4/5ths of this YA novel--until it turned into a teen romance. What's up with that? I've got too much work to do right now to right a better description or review. With a 14-year-old narrator, the book is listed as grade 7 and up, but I think it's perfectly suitable to older readers. It doesn't feel at all "tween."

Because I've been reading such crap lately, I sort of forced myself to finish this literary novel even though I wasn't enjoying it so much. It's actually quite poetically written; it just didn't grab me. The narrator is a pre-teen with an angry older sister, a fucked up veteran father, and a mother who doesn't have much of a presence in their lives. They've also got a dog that keeps getting knocked up and a bunny with no tail. That's all I've got to say about the book. Sorry.
