Title: His and Mine by Benét Stoen: A Novel in Verse
Synopsis: A broken boy and a broken girl find each other. And while wary of the other at first, they help each other through difficult times in their lives. Maybe together, they’ll find purpose and meaning.
Trigger Warnings: Abuse, attempted suicide, self harm
Notes: I was provided an ARC of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review
Thoughts: I enjoyed this novel more than I thought I would! It’s a novel in verse, which I’ve never read before, and I fell completely in love with the concept. The writing was beautiful and there were many one liners that I adored. It’s speedy and quick– I read it in about an hour, which is very unlike me.
“I saw a boy on the street corner of his and mine and I saw his arms covered in lines of tragic poetry no one cares to read.”
