HOW WAS THIS BOOK SIGNIFICANT FOR YOU? HOW WILL IT AFFECT YOUR WRITING?
I first read this book in the eighth grade and found the structure interesting. The story is told in multiple points of view via diary excerpts. It gave me the confidence to use multiple POVS for “Before The Blood,” knowing that the structure could be pulled off successfully.
