Tighter by Adele Griffin

Hey everyone! Book #4 is Tighter written by Adele Griffin, who is a national book award finalist! I'm sort of neutral about this book. My one minor comment is I felt like the plot started out slowly and the material was dry. I will admit there was a climax, but getting to the climax felt like it took ages. Throughout the book the main character will be talking, and lines from nursery rhymes will interrupt her thought. In the beginning it was kind of confusing and distracting because I wanted to put all the nursery rhymes together. However, after I picked up on the pattern the reading went more smoothly. I really enjoyed the relationship that developed between the the main character and another key character. It's the kind of relationship that develops when tragedy strikes or difficulties blocks one's way. In all, I enjoyed this novel. Would I read it again? No. Would I recommend it to someone? Yes, because that person could end up really enjoying it, and then I could get someone else's viewpoint on it. If any of you have read this novel feel free to leave a comment below explaining how you felt about the book. Thanks for reading!
