I read and knit and dance. Compulsively feel yarn. Consume books. Darn tights. Drink too much caffiene. All that good stuff.

Hmmmmm. I liked it in many ways and I can see the appeal for a lot of teens but there was something about it that rubbed me the wrong way.
I guess it was all of the anger the main character had and how it seemed even in death, she had not let go of it. I guess that's the whole point, but I also don't love the idea of leaving behind the legacy the responsibility of your suicide with a group of teenagers. That bummed me out. It just seemed like a really heavy trip to lay on anyone.
I interviewed Jay Asher this fall ad thought he had a lot of interesting insight and definitely was coming from a good place...

I really enjoyed this book.
I bought it and have read it twice.
Its that good.
It has a wonderful lesson in it for teens so I can see how its been in the NY times.
IT tells you to watch what you say and do to people because it does have an impact.
It gets you thinking of your every day actions and others actions and reactions to you and it gets you to understand that you do make a difference in other people's lives.

Grr... I want to read this book so bad but I can't find it anywhere but (where else?) B&N, and since the article says it's not out in paperback yet, I don't want to pay up!
But I will read it. I always do.
