Make Lemonade

Make Lemonade (Make Lemonade, Book 1) - Virginia Euwer Wolff

While a nice enough story about resilience, Make Lemonade confirmed that I just don't "get" the whole novel in free verse phenomenon.  


Sometimes limits, such as the compressed length of a short story, or the structured poetry of Shakespeare's plays lead to increased creativity on the part of the author.  As I have for the other verse novels I've read I felt like the poetry in Make Lemonade led to lack of complexity in characterization and material closer to a short story than a "novel".  


Perhaps I should look for the next novel in verse as an audiobook to see if my experience changes when the story is experienced aurally not visually.
