Feeling sorry...

This morning I finished the book Feeling Sorry for Celia by Jaclyn Moriarty.

This book was interesting, because characters were flowy, and changed a lot. This helped the plot progress in a fairly smooth manner.

Like Jaclyn's other books, Feeling Sorry for Celia wasn't written in traditional story format, but written in letters and notes. The letters were correspondence between the protagonist Elizabeth and her mother, her step-brother, her best friend Celia, and her pen-pal through school, (Christina). The other letters, (no usually responded to) were from odd societies and associations that feel obliged to write to Elizabeth. The notes, are from a "a stranger who rides your bus" or Elizabeth's bus.

Through this crazy manner a plot is revealed, and an amazingly twisted up story forms.

I enjoyed this novel (Feeling Sorry for Celia,) and all of it's companions, ( The Year of Secret Assignments, The Murder of Bindy Mackenzie, and The Ghosts of Ashbury High.)
