Her and Me and Youby Lauren Strasnick-60second Recap® POTW

[Books for teens ... of all ages.? http://www.60secondpicks.com] This week's Pick is a mixed bag. On the one hand, there's the powerful, beautiful writing—more like poetry than prose. There's the author's grasp of teenage emotions—and her hyper-effective ability to convey those emotions in a way that feels startlingly real. On the other hand, there's the subject matter of this book, which is disturbing, upsetting, and semi-compelling ... in a macabre sort of way. So be forewarned: Alex's story about being the new kid in town, and the child of divorced parents, and the teenage girl in a strange love triangle, is a quick and occasionally-seductive read. But in a book rife with so many troubling issues, don't expect a happy or satisfying ending.
