Editorial Reviews

"By turns poised and visceral." ( School Library Journal)

Publisher's Summary

Love - good and bad - forces three teens' worlds to tilt in a riveting standalone novel from #1 New York Timesbest-selling author Ellen Hopkins.

Three teens, three stories - all interconnected through their parents' family relationships. As the adults pull away, caught up in their own dilemmas, the worlds of the teens begin to tilt.

Mikayla, almost 18, is over-the-top in love with Dylan, who loves her back jealously. But what happens to that love when Mikayla gets pregnant the summer before their senior year and decides to keep the baby?

Shane turns 16 that same summer and falls hard in love with his first boyfriend, Alex, who happens to be HIV positive. Shane has lived for four years with his little sister's impending death. Can he accept Alex's love, knowing his life, too, will be shortened?

Harley is 14 - a good girl searching for new experiences, especially love from an older boy. She never expects to hurdle toward self-destructive extremes in order to define who she is and who she wants to be.

Love, in all its forms, has crucial consequences in this wrenching story from Ellen Hopkins.

Critic Reviews

"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)

Excellent work, as expected from this author.

Where does Tilt rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This was actually my first audiobook, I enjoyed it! It's a very different experience vs actually reading the book...it's a little hard to keep up with each different character in the beginning.

What did you like best about this story?

I always love how deep into the character and their thoughts/story she goes into in such little words. She really paints the picture of what each character is experiencing, I think the way she depicts each struggle they are facing is very well thought out and current to what young adults experience today.

What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

Everything! They portrayed the characters emotions very well.

are you kidding me?

the storyline may have been okay, but it is all for nothing! you have no idea what happens with anybody! unless you want to be completely outraged at the ending, do not read it!

Never lets me down!

I loved this book. I'm happy to hear the other side of Triangles from the kids point of view. There needs to be another!

Must read

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!
