Each Friday I'll feature one of my favorite books or a book I read in the last week and come up 5 words to describe it. View it as a super mini review. This week I'm featuring Tilt by Ellen Hopkins
Triangles which is told from the perspective of the adults.
Dysfunctional: This refers to all of the families in the story. I always joke that my family is dysfunctional. We're the Cleavers compared to the mess that makes up the families in this book.
Complex: The book is told from three separate POVs. The all intersect and entwine. They also have a page at the end of each chapter that is told from a whole different character's POV. There are a lot of moving parts.
Painful: Like most of Ellen Hopkin's books each of the three main characters is going through a very painful time in their lives.
Serious: The characters are all dealing with some very serious issues. There is nothing fun or funny in this book.
Abrupt: Refers to the ending. There was a definite ending scene, but ultimately no resolution to any of the characters or their problems.
