I'll Be Watching

I'll Be Watching - Pamela Porter I devoured this whole book in an afternoon. At first I was put off by the verse format, but within the first ten pages I'd fallen into the rhythm of the language and forgotten all about the style. The characters are pitch-perfect, the plot heartbreaking, and the landscape harsh, evoking feelings of profound isolation peppered with tiny rays of hope. I'll more readily recommend this book to adults than kids.
