Beneath a Meth Moon

Woodson, Jacqueline. Beneath a Meth Moon: an Elegy. New York: Nancy Paulsen Books, 2012. Print.

My Thoughts
Since the word "meth" is in the title, I thought I'd better take a look at the book in case there were any challenges. I'm glad I did. This book was incredible. I think Woodson captured the characters and made them memorable. This tale follows Laurel's path down the road of using meth. Along the way, she mets Moses who "delivers" her out of trouble.

I don't want to say too much, as the story needs to tell itself. Woodson's writing is descriptive and true. She uses vivid metaphors to describe Laurel's experiences. This is a work of fiction, but how true it really seems.
