Well, as a 15 year old female, I have not enjoyed this book one bit. I had to read it for summer and there is actually no way you can understand that much poetry. How do we know what's going on in his mind and why the heck he makes stuff rhyme? I like some poetry, but I'd much rather read a normal book, one without poetry. It was very boring.
