From the critics
Ava wants to wear pink, which isn’t a crime; or is it? The book centers around this. She secretly buys a cashmere sweater that she hides in the back of her closet (I’m not sure if that was suppose to be a metaphor but it worked for me). She secretly gets it out, all the while scared that her parents will bust into her room and catch her. Opening it she peels back the green sticker and pink paper( at which point I kept thinking it was something out of pulp fiction and the glowing brifecase) and there it was the pink sweater. Here are a few reasons why I liked the book and this is in no particular order: The cover, just look at it, it’s beautiful in it’s simplicity The writing. The writing was dare I say witty, sharp and funny. The teens smoked and drank. The characters (at least some of them) were not all beautiful, this story was like a goulash. The fact that it did not take place in America, yes there are teens in other countries that are fun to read about. And last but not least, there were adults in the book, which is novel considering in some YA books there are no adults let alone parents. The parents are away somewhere unknown that is sometimes never explained, or just not around but made mention of. Five adults, who at times had recurring roles. I do like this book enough to recommend it to teens. I give it 4 ½ pick cashmere sweaters.
