“That  girl was trying to tell me something, but whatever she had to say, I didn’t want to hear it.”

In Poster child, Emily Rapp does an amazing job of articulating the feelings of herself and other characters in past tense and juxtaposing them with the feelings and ideas she currently holds. Doing so allows her to give a multilevel experience to her readers. In which, she exposes–in raw truth– the feelings, ideas, and understanding she had then, with her newfound understanding. She then uses her analysis of both to get a pivotal point across to the readers about her experience and life experiences as a whole.  The combination of these things makes this a poignant read, where individuals care about and want to continue to read about her. They can relate to her through different experiences and emotions they have also had. They can begin to understand a new perspective on the world or they can simply read and absorb. Whatever an individual personally gets from this book is up to them, but there is no way nothing resonated with them at all, that they could careless about Emily or any experience that she had.
