We didn't mind the book too much. We had a hard time believing the snow storm and the fact that no one found them in the 5 days. We also thought it was a little like Dessen's Along for the Ride with the girl going to stay with her dad and his new wife and new baby . . . only in verse. Speaking of the verse, it didn't hinder anything. For me, I found myself still being able to picture the scene in my head without the need for detailed paragraphs.
Next up, Sara Zarr's Story of a Girl. I'll try to keep you informed this time. I promise.
