I love the form Ellen Hopkins writes in, the poetic prose. But this book had, for me, too many characters, all telling their stories in first person, and I found their voices too similar, which somehow made the story a bit flat.

This goes, so far, only for this book. I've read several of hers and I find them beautifully written and very true to life, pageturners.

Any Ellen Hopkins book is amazing. They're truthful, creatively written and both sad but incredibly hopeful. She's an amazing author.

Engrossing but confusing 13 Sept. 2012
By Mary Ann Downing - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I am a huge Ellen Hopkins fan. I devour her books the way to do a bag of cookies...I can't stop unit the bag is empty (or the book is finished.) She is that compulsive a read. Having read all her other books, I am accustomed to her multi-story line format involving three of four main characters whose stories intersect. TILT is no different. This time around we have nearly 18-year-old Mikayla who is sure her love for her boyfriend is so strong that nothing can break it. Thirteen-year-old Harley is caught in the most awkward of situations, halfway between childhood and teenhood, with her off-and-on dad marrying a woman that appears to understand Harley better than her own mother. Then there is Shane, experiencing his first love with HIV positive Alex. All these characters are compelling and you care about what happens to them.
What prevented me from awarding this book my usual 5 stars is the plethora of secondary characters who have their own stories. All of these characters are interconnected in some way...blood relatives, friends, friends of friends. Not only that, but each of the parents of the three main characters have their own dramas. Breaking with her usual form of telling the story through the first person characters of her main characters, this time Hopkins let's everyone have their say. Helpfully, the book designer reminds us that these are "outside observers" by placing their chapters on greyed paper. After awhile with all the cousins, and aunts and uncle, boyfriends and girlfriends, and a posse of friends for each of the characters, I began to wish the book had included a dramatis personae to keep them all straight.
Additionally, Hopkins covers a ton of hot button topics...teen HIV, pregnancy, euthanasia, abortion, casual sex, drug use and drinking,adoption and a search for a birth parent, plus both teen and adult infidelity. Whew! I love Hopkins' writing, but perhaps there was just a little too much crammed into this one. I blew through this in four hours (starting the second it downloaded to my Kindle), so now I am going to re-read it, more slowly, to see if I can keep all the characters straight. However, if you are a Hopkins fan, you will not be disappointed.
Also a word of warning if you are reading this in the Kindle version. A lot of the meaning of Hopkins work comes from the way the verse is arranged on the page. Not only is this feature mostly missing in the Kindle version, tI can tell there are a whole words and phrases left out. This is really reading between the lines.

Disappointed. 22 May 2014
By Marianne Lee (Boricuan Bookworms) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I’ve only ever read Perfect by Ellen Hopkins, and I absolutely loved it. When I faced Tilt, I thought I had another great book in my hands.

What really ruined this book for me was the fact that I could not get emotionally invested in the characters’ lives.

Mikayla never really spoke to me. I couldn’t understand her romance with Dylan. I really couldn’t see their romance as anything other than a very unhealthy co-dependency. Mikayla’s every thought was about Dylan, and about how she could twist and turn and bend herself in every which way to make him happy. We only start to see real character from her when she finds out she’s pregnant, and even then she’s over the top, jealous, petty and immature. I really wished throughout the whole book that someone would give her a reality check, because her chapters were definitely very difficult to tolerate.

Harley got on my nerves more than anything. She's is tired of being a “good girl”, so she wants to change that. Harley does so many things that I really wish never to read again. I’m 18, and seeing a 14-year old make so many subsequent bad decisions was agonizing. I ached to be her mother and slap some sense into her. All I can really say about her overall outcome is: it was expected.

The only point of view that I really enjoyed was Shane’s. Shane’s story was the one that captivated me the most, and the one that didn’t make me want to roll my eyes most of the time. Shane and Alex’s relationship was so different and so genuine from the other relationships in this book. They had to overcome religious parents, judgmental peers, health issues, mental disorders, etc. There were so many things happening between them, and it was so nice to see how their relationship would twist and turn and accommodate to what was happening. I loved this part of the story.

Between each chapter there was a point of view of a different minor character, and at first it was good. After that, it turned really unnecessary to the plot and basically useless.

The narrators for this audiobook were wonderful. They each knew how to represent their characters and did excellent jobs at portraying the emotions. They really played at my heartstrings in some parts, and I really loved that. However, not even the brilliant narration could have salvaged the book for me.

The ending was by far the worst part of this book. Because of the ending I had to remove a star from my rating. When I had thought that I was finally going to see how everything was resolved, the book ended. It ended abruptly; every single problem was left unresolved. Every character’s story was left wide open. I really don't know what happened with any of them. I was really disappointed at this.

Overall, if it wouldn’t have been for the disappointing ending and the lack of connection to most of the characters, I would've enjoyed this book. However, I do recommend audiobooks with the same narrators, because they did a wonderful job.

Rating: 1.5 stars

Closure please? 30 Jun. 2013
By cheryl johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I enjoyed the whole book up until the end. She left off with some intense situations and didn't give us closure or answers. I'm a huge fan of Ellen Hopkins, but I definitely think the ending could have been better. It sort of ruins the rest of the story because it builds up so much. It's almost as if the climax is at the very end, and the intro is the entire book. Maybe there will be
a sequel? I hope so. I do recommend this because it covers many important topics.

Love it 30 Jan. 2013
By brianna - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I gave this book 4 stars because like all of Ellens books, it's a masterpiece, both in the story itself and the poetry in the writing. I couldn't wait to read it, and once I got it in my hands I just drank it in. But it seems like there wasn't any real closure in the end. Not like a cliff hanger, but more of an unfinished thought. Either way though the book was great! And I loved it :) <3 <3 <3 I would definitely recommend it to teens over the age of at least 16 our 17

Wonderful read! 23 Nov. 2012

It was a wonderful read, although I wish she would've gone deeper into the story regarding Mikki and what she was planning on doing with her daughter.
