pop culture week: quality literature

welcome to pop culture week in which i tell you of seven gifts from the entertainment industry in 2012 that were so amazing that i didn't even miss them!  i'm quirky.  be warned.

first up, literature.  technically, i'm cheating already as i just finished this book this evening (and we've been in 2013 for six days already).  but i wanted to read it in 2012, so it's all good.

this book is bizarre and amazing and that's all i can tell you about it.  no, really.  it's one of those rare finds that totally kept me in the dark from one page to the next (i'm notorious for predicting plots, so a book that stumps me is always a winner).  i don't want to tell you anything because i don't want to ruin the experience for you.  ok.  one more thing: the words are beautifully chosen AND it has a driving story line.  my two criteria for greatness both in the same book.  read it!

p.s. this book is considered young adult fiction, but believe me, it is mature enough for adult audiences.  i'd say it's suitable for mature middle schoolers, definitely high school, and you all too.  don't let the title and cover image fool you either.  boys will love it too.
