Ella is an aspiring artist who has always been misunderstood. She would say the wrong things about the wrong people, and that has turned her to an easy target for bullying. She then falls for a Palestinian boy named Samir who has enlightened her and caused her to broaden her horizon on so many levels. But pressure is building up back at home and her parents seem to be closed off and unwilling. Her escape is her art and she always wants to create bold, true and controversial pieces. However, one piece was perhaps too controversial when she gets sued for child pornography because she added a picture of her genitalia in her work. This forces her and the people she loves to speak up for what they believe in. This was an emotionally powerful story that would be relatable for so many teenagers around the world. From trauma to heartbreak, and religious views to censorship, this novel incorporates so many controversial and honest themes that will inspire readers. I’m personally not used to stories told in verses, but this was such a beautiful tale that I couldn't put it down. Rating:4.5/5
