To the person who said it was "innapropriate" :

I suggest you shut up. Ive read every single one of ellen hopkins books, and i dont regret them one bit. Shes a talented author, who writes about serious real-world issues. Shes amazing at what she does. These books are phenominal. Ill be a fan of hers until I die. She writes these things because she can, and because these are things that appeal to mist anyone. Ajd i niticed you dont recommend it to 12-14 year olds, but say its okay for 16 and up. What about me? Im 15. If you dont like these books, you obviously dont get the message she sends out, and yiu have bad taste in genre.

This book is actually quite innapropraite. I would say read this if you are a MATURE OLDER TEENAGER (16-19). This is definatly nit a book for younger teens(13-14). I only read where it says the girl strips off her panties and puts him inside her...i mean if you WANT to read that by all means...go ahead but i never did and never will read this...simply because of the sexual content. It is a truly really innapropriate book...DO NOT READ!!!!!!!!!!!

    Raven

    She padded in, examined the area, then nodded to herself. "Your life will be ok, Raven.... its going to be ok...." She sighed and laid down, her head down sadly. The sun hit her gray pelt, making it glow red.

    After having read Triangles by Ellen Hopkins earlier this year,

    After having read Triangles by Ellen Hopkins earlier this year, I was pretty excited for her follow up, Tilt. While Triangles revolves around the lives of the adults, Tilt focuses on the teenagers. The writing is intense and brutally honest in some spots, and the teens have their own set of issues to trudge through.

    Overall, I really like the story. Unfortunately, there isn't really anything that surprises me since I already read Triangles. It's interesting to see things unravel through the teens' eyes, though.

    At the end of the novel there is a special note by the author. Toward the end, the author recommends that teens wait until they are in a committed relationship to have sex. Again, why is this necessary? While it is commendable that she is warning teens of the dangers of unprotected sex, why not just advise teens to use protection? There is nothing wrong with having sex if one is not in a relationship. One needs to protect themselves, though. Be safe. Take care of your body. So reading that at the end is a kind of a let down for me. One can still get HIV, an STD, or get pregnant in a committed relationship.

    All in all, a good story that I read rather quickly. Perhaps I read into the story a little too much sometimes, but I believe that reading is a very personal experience so everyone is going to feel something different. Ellen Hopkins is a great writer with much talent and realism.

    Cant wait for the next

    Ive read every single book and thought this one was one of the better ones, until i got to the end. Slightly disappointed with the ending being cut so abruptly. Hopkins always left me begging for more, but not so much this one. Awesome story line though. Shows more real teenage life. I cant wait for the next one :)
