"This will be recognizable territory to anyone who has read Hopkins' earlier novels…As a cautionary tale, however, this offers helpful insights into the continuing presence of HIV in teen lives and the urgency of making better choices in matters involving sex." (Booklist)
"Brimming with shoes about to drop (some do, some don't) and the drama her fans devour…" (Kirkus Reviews)
I really enjoyed Ellen Hopkins books when I was in high school and I fell out of interest when I got older. However, I read her two books that are more directed towards adults, "collateral" and "triangle" and it made me remember what an amazing author she is. I originally wasn't going to read this book because I was pretty over the whole "teen drama" however, after reading the description I realized that it was the sequel to "triangle" it was the
Kids point of view instead of the mothers. So well written and heart felt. This was truly a good listen. I recommend this for every!
