    My first book of poems And I enjoyed it I picked up this book a couple of weeks back while doing a book hunt in Booksale Waltermart The plot is about every working dad depending on his circumstances fears losing one s source of income while his children are still studying and his wife is a full time housekeeper I flipped through the pages and saw that the story is told in a series of free style poems I thought it looked neat and I called my 15 y o daughter to check it She read the rest of the bl [...]

    The plot is simple enough Some people might even find it boring But I loved the authenticity of a young girl dealing with her entire world being turned upside down I really enjoyed the writing style, which was descriptive and lyrical without being too flowery I ve never quite been in Vicki s situation, but I could relate to a lot of her struggles and her questions to the universe.

    This was fabulous Just happened upon it at the library The title appealed to me The format did, too Poetry, lists, verbal ephemera, in a way But the plot is what really hooked me Vicki s father loses his job and the family must sell their beautiful home in the burbs and move into an apartment, a tiny apartment at that, in the city Her father struggles considerably with depression, which is really of a sideline The crux of the matter is Vicki s struggle to come to terms with the new circumstance [...]

    At first, it isn t such a big deal that Vikki s father is laid off from his job Everyone is confident he will find a new one But, after 2 years of searching and drowning in debt, Vikki s parents decide it is time to sell their house and move Vikki isn t at all at peace with this decision Now she has to adjust to a new school, new friends, and a new apartment that they are sharing with a lady who rents a room Having a hard time with her situation, Vikki finally does something about it and instant [...]

    This is a story told in lists, journal entries, poems, letters Vicki Marnet is a writer, and her writing helps her to deal with the mess her family life has become Her dad has lost his job, after working for the same company for 28 years He s having a lot of trouble finding a job, and is depressed Vicki s family has to sell their home in the suburbs and move to an apartment in the city, where her mother has found a receptionist job It means switching schools, leaving friends, and selling off tre [...]

    This book is the first that I m reading for the 2009 Librarians Reading Challenge.I find books about kids who are rich or at least well off and then fall on hard times really annoying They re hardly ever done in a way that makes me feel any sympathy for the main character This book is in that category, which is one of the reasons I didn t like it so much I kept wanting to tell the protagonist to buck up and act like an adult, which is probably a really dumb thing to tell a 12 year old This is pr [...]

    Victory Marnet is a girl who loves to write unique poetry and mantras about her daily life, and she records them in a journal that she carries everywhere In this journal, it tells the story of how her father lost her job, left the family, and of her own crime that she couldn t tell anybody about ever.I really hated this book Victory was filled with unbelievable amounts of unnecessary drama Her situation was tough, yes, but her reaction to it was really blown out of proportion Even if the writing [...]

    For a book made up of poems, I really liked it I m recently into poetry, so it was fun to read.Vikki does NOT want to move to the big city When she does, she feels poor and outcasted So she steals from someone close to their family.It haunts her, so she works to pay it back.She must learn to trust others and not depend entirely on herself, while catching the feel for a new place.She was a great example to me I think if I would ve been older when I moved, I would ve been like her.

    it was justokay It was kind of hard to get used to at first But my policy is always finish a book no matter how much you hate it So I got through the whole thing The story line was alright I didn t really feel connected to the main character see i forgot her name and i NEVER forget names on REALLY good books The reason why I put it two stars instead of one is because I m really into poetry and stuff So I liked seeing her poems.

    Loved this book Novels in verse are so entertaining to read I loved how the main character talked openly about her feelings about her family s loss of money That is something that young people don t hear a lot about and yet it impacts them so much I made my 14 year old read this book just so we could have an informed discussion about money Fantastic read

    Written in the same style as Shakespeare Bats Cleanup as a series of journal entries written in list poem rambling run on sentence style, this book could inspire children to just sit down and start writing I can t say anything bad about that, can I

    This might be the best book o poems I ve ever read notice how it s still only 3 stars, and probably only that high because some of them don t look like poems Somehow, the disjointed format worked for this character, and in telling this specific story, in a way that poetry almost never does.

    I have been reading a lot of children s and YA books this summer and, while there is nothing particularly wrong with this book, it just seemed too depressing for my taste.
