Three Rivers Rising by Jame Richards - ADVISABLE

Celestia and her family are staying at a fancy clubhouse for the rich and high society people at Lake Conemaugh in summer of 1888. While there, Celestia meets and falls for Peter, a boy working there, but because of their different classes in society, they cannot be together without Celestia being disowned. 

A book completely make up of poems, yet still having an actual storyline. I love it. All of the poems are free verse, but because they are poems, the words flow way better than they would in a regular story and it swept me away.
