By Sonya Sones ~

The title immediately attracted me to this book, but when I opened it up and saw it seemed to be written in free verse; a poem a page, I had second thoughts. I’m very glad I gave it a try. It’s the story of Ruby, a 14 year old, uprooted by the death of her mother, to go to California to live with her famous father, whom she never met. Ruby has to leave her boyfriend Ray and best friend Liz and start all over again. Did I mention she hates her father? Why is he being so nice to her when he never took the time before? And what kind of name is Whip Logan? As Ruby says:
Can you believe that name?
It sounds so…so made up.
How did he ever come up with something that lame?
