Summary

One HELLO? can change a life. One HELLO? can save a life.   Tricia: A girl struggling to find her way after her beloved grandma's death. Emerson: A guy who lives his life to fulfill promises, real and hypothetical. Angie: A girl with secrets she can only express through poetry. Brenda: An actress and screenplay writer afraid to confront her past. Brain: A potter who sets aside his life for Tricia, to detriment of both. Linked and transformed by one phone call, Hello? weaves together these five Wisconsin teens' stories into a compelling narrative of friendship and family, loss and love, heartbreak and healing, serendipity, and ultimately hope. Told from all five viewpoints: narration (Tricia, Emerson and Brain), free verse poetry (Angie), screenplay format (Brenda) and drawings (Brain).  


Way i am waiting.... 



I was intrigued by the five different view points and the formats they come in. Normally i am not huge on reading poetry. 

Mostly because i really think that it is something that is just so open for everyone to interpret that is hard to write a whole book with it and really get the meaning across someone wants to say, simply because it is not something everyone will understand in the same way. 

But this book offers just one perspective in that way and so i really want to try it and see if it is really as difficult as i think. 
And the idea of all those different format, characters and stories wound together through one event... that just sounds fantastic. And like something that could be really interesting. 

I do think that this book can either be fantastic. Or horrible. Depending on how well Wiemer manages to write it. 

I never read anything by her. I don't know if she wrote anything else or if this is her first book. I am not going to look. 

I want to read this book and see for myself how well this author manages to write a story from five different perspective, if she really manages to put all those different aspects and formats together in a way that works and that make sense or not. 

And the cover? really beautiful. So i can't wait until i get my hands on this book. And see what it is all about.
