Because this book was written in verse
and since I like being creative,
I’m writing my review
As a poem.
But don’t be harsh- I’m no poet.
Gimme some slack
Just this once.
And no, it ain’t gonna rhyme.
Because I don’t think I can do this poetry thing for long.
Love and Leftovers was good,
I loved that it’s written
As a young girl’s poems
About her topsy-turvy life.
It was fun and quick to read
Because the words
Seem to march single file down the page
That’s where the ‘likes’ end and the ‘dislikes’
All the characters were overly obsessed with sex.
And that sort of thing.
And dwelt on it
As if it were the key to the universe.
Their definition of love was two people making out and touching each other.
Can we say confused?
Marcie doubted her boyfriend was even into her
All because he respected her
And didn’t use her.
By the end of the book
I was sick
With hearing all about
-Marice’s bisexual dad (ew, sick, twisted)
-Linus and his stupid song lyrics (I keep picturing an emo rocker dragging around a blue blanket)
-And these kids’ obsession with physical affection (Hey! That rhymed! Kind of…).
While I liked the verse
I didn’t enjoy the story.
It’s not that great.
Kind of made me sick to my stomach
