Multifaceted YA

In my opinion, the best thing about this novel was its structure. The plot advances a little each chapter, told from a rotating series of perspectives. It creates a broad sympathy on the part of the reader, and a real sense of crisis when the essential group of characters threatens to pull apart. The dramatic irony is that we know they belong together, even if they don't. We have a glimpse of a perfection in their relationships that is harder to see from the gritty, dystopian street level they inhabit. It's a cleverly structured tale, perfectly pitched for a YA audience.
