Love—good and bad—forces three teens' worlds to tilt in a riveting standalone novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Ellen Hopkins. Three teens, three stories—all interconnected through their parents' family relationships. As the adults pull away, caught up in their own dilemmas, the worlds of the teens begin to tilt. Mikayla, almost eighteen, is over-the-top in love with Dylan, who loves her back jealously. But what happens to that love when Mikayla gets pregnant the summer before their senior year and decides to keep the baby? Shane turns sixteen that same summer and falls hard in love with his first boyfriend, Alex, who happens to be HIV positive. Shane has lived for four years with his little sister's impending death. Can he accept Alex's love, knowing his life, too, will be shortened? Harley is fourteen—a good girl searching for new experiences, especially love from an older boy. She never expects to hurdle toward self-destructive extremes in order to define who she is and who she wants to be. Love, in all its forms, has crucial consequences in this wrenching story from Ellen Hopkins.

A good compliment to Triangles. Interesting to see the viewpoint from the kids' perspectives. Read Triangles first, though.

this book is absolutely amazing! I love how it's written in free verse. It's just so page turning and beautifully written; definitely one of the best books I've read :) It was awesome to have the few poems from the perspective of the other characters than the main ones.

I liked this book, but I still don't understand why the author decided to write 2 books with the same setting and characters, just from a different point of view. This book takes place during the same time as Triangles, so you get the same story line, but more personal info on the teens. I really enjoyed Shane, Mikayla and Harley's characters, but there were a bunch of random poems thrown in there from the people these 3 met along the way. Overall, I would recommend this book, but don't think that you have to read Triangles before reading Tilt.
