“I thought that the book was confusing at first, and I disliked the language and the slang terms used in it. After a while, I got used to the language, and I was able to concentrate on the book. I thought the ending was sad, but it left a cliffhanger. They didn't actually say whether or not Violet would live or die, but by the writing you could probably guess that she was dead. I disliked Titus towards the end of the book, because he ended up ignoring Violet and moving on in his life like he never even met her. Then again, you can tell that he was in love with her at the time, and he couldn't face the fact that he was going to lose her......so he tried to avoid it. I really liked the part where Titus was explaining to Violet about the hide and seek games he played when he was younger at Link's house, trying to level with her about how she felt then. The ending was very sad, because Titus was at her bedside the last few minutes she was alive, crying and telling her their story. I recommend this book for those readers who want to be challenged more.”
