Convince us to read the book: Please Ignore Vera Dietz is a unique book about an alcoholic teenager dealing with the death of a friend and the unresolved feelings she has for him
Compelling Aspect of the Book: Vera's father is very influential throughout the entire story. He became a father before he hit twenty and is an ex-alcoholic, but managed to turn his life around and raise his daughter. He presents a good roll model to young fathers and demonstrates that even people in dismal circumstances can make everything better.
Cover: Very cool cover, I especially enjoy the lime green, certainly makes the cover stand out from the crowd.
