Ok- so Slammed...hmmm... Where to begin? I have to say, that I really felt a Twilight fanfic vibe to this in the beginning and it made it a little difficult to connect...so it took me a while to get into it. That being said, I did enjoy how well this book was written. Death isnt the easiest topic to write about,...and there will be times where you need to stop, wipe your eyes and compose yourself- BUT all in all- a good read. The poetry is really beautiful. I found it a little funny that every chapter started with an Avett Brother lyric...but whatev, it actually makes me want to hear one of their songs. I am already almost finished with Point of Retreat-which I am enjoying MORE than Slammed.
