A Monster Calls vs Split

Jaylene and I both agreed on these two. She created the Haiku's!

A Monster Calls Haiku

Our truths lie dormant
Awaiting life’s sad lessons
Strength to heal offered

Wow, what a read! The use of nature in the form of the yew tree’s tales was used to help Conor heal and recognize some important lessons: that truth cheats us, believing is only half of healing, and that we literally disappear in times of overwhelming grief. This book was awesome and wins out over Split for us.


Split Haiku


Hit-sorry-forgive
Decisions made in anger
To rescue or not?

This is a pervasive problem in our society and so well hidden. Does the law really assist those in situations as outlined by the author? So many of these victims are truly trapped in their own worlds and yet choose to remain in danger. This is a mature read.
