This middle-grade novel-in-verse is a thoughtful look at a common issue: parents who are fighting.
It is no secret that Anna’s parents are going through a rough patch. When that rough patch turns positively volatile, Anna starts to wonder why her parents are staying together at all. Will their anger destroy everything Anna has ever known? Can Anna allow herself to fall in love when she sees how it can turn so easily to hate?
This book explores Anna’s attempt at balancing her chaotic life and home and her life at school with her friends. I’m sure many tweens and teens can relate to her feelings on the matter – and it was a nice read as well.
