5.0 out of 5 stars Leaving Pardise is awesome, 4 Dec 2010
This review is from: Leaving Paradise (Paperback)
Leaving Paradise is an awesome book and I would recommend that it's for an audience 12 and over.
Simone Elkeles really portrays the feelings of the two main characters as well as the minor characters. She uses a vast vocabulary to describe this and also the other feelings of Caleb and Maggie. For instance, when Caleb comes out of jail and goes home to his family Simone Elkeles really describes the way Caleb thinks that his family isn't acting the way that they should be. Then with Maggie she has to blend in again at school with not much self confidence in what she wears and she thinks that's important.
The plot of the book is very appealing, especially to the teenage market. I wonder in her next book whether she will continue with the same story and characters or start afresh. I hope Simone Elkeles will be able to keep writing the same standard of writing!
