Bridget Zinn definitely accomplished her goal of writing a “book with pockets of warmth and happiness.” I thought “Poison” was charming and wholly genuine. All too often YA books are strewn with heavy topics that aren’t suitable for teenagers. It was refreshing to read about a strong young woman who wasn’t afraid to be herself.
There were a couple copy editing mistakes, but nothing too glaring. The ending contained a twist I wasn’t quite expecting, which was pleasantly surprising. Looking back, the twist almost seems as though it was thrown in to tie up loose ends because I certainly wasn’t expecting it. Some parts felt a bit forced, but overall I thought this book was an enjoyable read.
