Ms. Brisson's website has information regarding the the types of poetry used in this book and a brief bite about the book: Fifteen-year-old Molly Biden is tired of being thought of as the good girl. She gives herself a make-over in order to capture Grady Dillon’s attention. But exactly how far is she willing to go to get the guy?This is a novel in verse.
This book was wonderful and touching. Molly decides she's tired of being known as only the good girl. She sets out to change all that. And boy, does she ever! This book has humor, sadness and even hopefulness thrown in. One of the things I really loved is that it's not all free verse. When a different form of poetry is used, it's listed. I particularly loved the poem Molly wrote to her virginity.
Once upon a time, I used to write a great deal of poetry and wouldn't mind getting back to some of it. I'm actually considering re-working one of my ms to possibly be a novel in verse. It might be fun. :) I'm giving The Best and Hardest Thing 4 gentle kisses!
