Fishtailing is poetic and eye opening. It took me a few pages to understand what was going on. But then when i got into it, the page just keep on a turnin'. I love books in verse! I think it makes the story more intense and dramatic. In 'Fishtailing', it almost seems like i read it/watch it before. This young innocent girl(Tricia) meets the influential bad girl (Natalie). Drugs, sex, and self mutilation lead from there. I hated Natalie, she was so manipulative. Honesty she made me sick! Now Tricia...you know it makes me so mad how these girls can just get swept away and be manipulated by some crazy chick. Tricia has a lot going for her then Natalie comes along. Kyle and Miguel...boy were they fooled and vulnerable. The problem i had was just how easy all these characters were easy manipulated and played by Natalie. Where are the smart people! But they were written beautifully (in verse!) I can understand, you know High School, you want to be different yet belong. All in all, I really enjoy reading book like these. Innocence can be lost in many ways. Phillips created a great story and good characters. Article by Faye of Ramblings of a Teenage Bookworm.
