A review by hellohannahw
Run, Rebel, by Manjeet Mann
The last three novels I've read have been in poetry and this was definitely the one that handled the poetry aspect the best. I really felt that the poems felt relavent and they added clarity to the book. I did find the romance between Amber and David to feel a little lacklustre and boring at times and think if they'd just been friends it would have been just as powerful. The relationships between Amber and her mum, Ruby or Gemma were very well written and I think the merits of this book heavily outweigh the negatives. I did find the first quarter of the book to be a little boring so my advice to anyone starting reading it would be to carry on.
