    Such a wonderful read – I feel quite broken now that I have finished. Written in free verse it packs such a heartbreaking story into a fairly small amount of words yet conveys so much. I will be thinking about this for a long time. Sarah Crossan is very talented and someone I need to read more of! Here is the Beehive is also excellent.
