Although I can appreciate this as a visually compelling method of storytelling, let's get the phrase 'a novel' off the front page. I'm not a big fan of this type of book. There's a compelling story here, but I am struggling with this being labeled as a YA novel. The book touches on mental instability in a thought-provoking manner, and the relationship between the two main characters wanders from sweetly intense to overly dependent. I wouldn't recommend buying this one. Check it out from the library (like I did) or spend a few minutes looking through it at book store before spending $20.00.
