Book Review: The best and Hardest Thing by Pat Brisson

Title: The Best and Hardest Thing
Author: Pat Brisson
Date Published: May 13th, 2010
Pages: 240

Goodreads Synopsis:
Fifteen-year-old Molly Biden has always been studious, dependable, some might even say saintly. And she's sick of herself. So when she spots mysterious bad boy Grady Dillon, she devises a plan to make herself over into someone new, someone who will attract Grady's attention. She succeeds but a little too well. When Molly discovers she?s pregnant, she's forced to make the hardest choice of her life. This addictive readable portrayal of Molly's struggle to accept her pregnancy and the fact that her life will never be the same is told entirely in poetry, from sonnets to haiku.

Initial thoughts:
I was shopping on amazon (Bargain books) When I came across this book. I was instantly drawn to it because of the cover. I t made we want to read it so bad! I also love the purple and turquoise colors!

After Thoughts:
When I first received the book, I found out that it was written in poem form. At first I thought it would take away from the book, but after reading it, I realized it actually made the book a lot better. Even though this was a very quick/short read, I felt very connected to the main character, Molly. I always felt her emotions, and really liked her. I would have liked to get to know Gary a little more, but i don't think it really took away from the story.  Some of the poems were amazing, and made me think about things in a different light. I loved this book, and i rated it 5/5 stars!

Purchase this book from the book depository, and i get a small commission:
