    Highly Recommended

    The Great Divide is told from the perspective of both Vincent and Chrissie.

    At times, I enjoyed reading Vincent's point of view more; his voice seemed to be more reflective and insightful.

    Although not specifically stated in the story, it is set in Charleston, South Caroline and has subtle reflections on lynching and racism from the past.

    Chrissie goes to a private school and is white, while Vincent is black. Before she realises Vincent is rich, she often wonders if his dad earns his income as a drug-dealer or a gangster.

    The story reflects perfectly the mixed feelings of young adults, falling in love yet at the same time wanting to please and not disappoint their parents.

    The reference to Romeo and Juliet is very fitting, and I agree with the back cover that it is indeed a modern interpretation of this classic.

    The story could have gone into more detail, at times, I felt cheated and that there could have been more explanations, especially in the beginning. The end though makes up for it and builds up perfectly to the unexpected end.

    The story is very sad, and the quote in the front of the book, from one of Dean Koontz' books, are very apt.

    I think not everyone will enjoy this poignant story, as it involves inter-racial relationships, but it so truly reflects the emotions of the young, caught in these circumstances and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good love story.

    Ps: Truly Young Adult - no steamy scenes in this one - Sorry!
