One For Sorrow definitely gets points for originality. But, while the premise was unusual, I felt that something was missing. Perhaps because I’m not a teenager, or, maybe, because of something else, I didn’t get a lot of emotion from this book.
I enjoyed the storyline immensely, and I believe that Mr. Barzack shows a great deal of promise, but it didn’t really make me feel much of anything. On a scale of one to five, I give this debut offering three-and-a-half stars.
Read it, certainly, especially if you are fifteen. Hopefully, it will move you more than it did me.
Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars
