And Then Things Fall Apart - Arlaina Tibensky From "Best Kept YA Secrets 2011" www.jenryland.blogspot.com Dec 13, 2011Sylvia Plath. Chicken Pox. An old-fashioned typewriter. This sounds like a party game: pick three things out of a hat and make them into a story. But it works. Keek is quarantined at her grandmother's house with a case of the chicken pox and this mysterious device called a typewriter. She's pissed at her boyfriend. Her parents are splitting up. And she's obsessed with Sylvia Plath. This book is clever, poignant and funny. Keek has a strong, hilarious voice. If you haven't read this book, why not?
