    The Facts Speak for Themselves

    I thought the book The Facts Speak for Themselves was an ok book. It had some good points and some bad points about it. I liked the fact that I wanted to read the book more and more. It made me want to read on, because the things that the girl was saying were so outrageous that I wanted to hear what was going to happen to her next. Another thing I liked was how the girl told us everything. She told us what she was thinking, what she saw, what other people did, et cetera. It was very descriptive. I got some good imagery for the author describing things. She even told us some things that weren¿t even relevant to her story, like a big bird she saw and how certain people smelled to her. It was also good how the author just left a little detail hanging open in the beginning that he closed up in the end it tied the story together very well. Something I didn¿t like about the book was the fact that I couldn¿t exactly to relate to the topic, but I wouldn¿t want to either. If I were in a position like the Lauren¿s (the main character), I would be comforted to hear about other people with the same problems, even if it was fictional. The story was a bit inspirational in the way that, Lauren had all these problems and she still managed to survive. I also didn¿t like the fact that the story was kind of plot-less. The fact that it didn¿t really have a plot was because it was just a girl telling the story of her life. However interesting her life was, there still was little to no plot in the story. I would definitely not call this book boring, but I wouldn¿t call it extremely good either. Over all I thought this was a pretty good book and that it is worth reading. By Eve Liberatore :)
