YA or Adult..That is the Question
By: Andrea Portes
Genre: Adult/YA fiction
3 out of 5
I cannot decide if this should be a YA or adult book. My feeling isn’t so much that a teen couldn’t handle the material (although it’s probably too rough for young teens), but I don’t know if the story would hold their interest. Libraries seem to find it a difficult task as well – some have in YA others in Adult – probably depending on how conservative the library is. It’s told in the voice of Luli, a 13 year old girl, as she leaves home and travels to Las Vegas. She meets a lot of unique strangers along the way. I was really into this book at the beginning and couldn’t put it down but then it fell flat. There was never any climax and the excitement just disappeared.
