Splintering by Eireann Corrigan

Like the glass that shattered when the knife waving intruder, foaming at the mouth breaks into mimi's apartment so do the lives of mimi, her sister, brother and parents splinter after the trauma is over. This story is written in the new popular free verse form and its very sketchy but you do get a sense of the emotions the characters are experiencing.

I liked the way this book was written in the free verse poetry. It is a nice change to the paragraph format we are all used to. Parts of it are sketchy but if you follow closely then you will understand the story. It is also good to read from the sister's point of view then the brothers. You can sense the emotions that the author is conveying through all of the characters.
