  1. I believe this is a sequel, but it is a complete story and does not rely on the first book. However, I think the writing style, because it is in verse, does not give me that overall “story” feel because of how narrow the plotline is. So because of that I would not vote it as the best book of the year.

  2. Before i read this book, i had never read a book in verse before. I liked it so much, that i read lots of other books in verse, but none of them were as good. I love the way the author captures all the fealings and puts them down making it seem like you are the character, and you feel the same stuff he does. I also read the companion to this book, “Love That Dog,” I still think that this book is better.
