When My Sister Started Kissing

I really am intrigued by Helen Frost's work.  The skill to create a poetic narrative and to use different forms for the different voices - superb.  I think overall though I was more taken by that than by the story itself.  I was drawn in at the beginning with the death of Claire and Abi's mom and wish there had been more about that.  The story was not bad - it just didn't really grab me and while I appreciate the different voices and poetic forms I did get a bit confused by who was speaking at times.
