And Then Things Fall Apart

And Then Things Fall Apart - Arlaina Tibensky I could never really get into this one. Keek is a soon-to-be sophomore dealing with chicken pox, a dissolving family, lack of technology, and a boyfriend who is tired of not sealing the deal. We're given the story across the days of Keek's illness. Keek finds an old typewriter to use and spends the book describing a past event and relating it to The Bell Jar.There was potential for this story to delve deeper and go further than it went. A decent read for middle grades and teens. One HUGE nitpick I had was the use of the slang 'sofa king' for 'so fucking'. I cringed every time I read the phrase.
