This Is What I Did by Ann Dee Ellis

Published in 2007. 176 pages.

After reading Suey's recent review at It's All about Books, I just had to pick this young adult novel up from the library.

This Is What I Did is a very quick but gut-wrenching read. What I loved most was the unique way the story was presented, as if the character Logan is writing it and with graphics added. Immersing myself in its stream-of-consciousness feel, I really felt like I was getting inside Logan's head, and I had a hard time putting the book down. I also loved the palindrome notes that Logan's new friend Laurel gives him.

This was Ann Dee Ellis' debut novel. I'll definitely be looking for more of her work!
