    A Okay Book

    This book takes a lot of time to read. It has tooken me anout two monthes to read. Other than the time that it took to read, it was a great book. I would recommend this book to anyone with a high reading level, that reads fast, or has a lot of extra time. (Which is just about no one anymore!!)

    Good book for people with identity problems

    While reading this book, I tried to remember that this is a juvenile book. As I read along I found myself thinking that the book kept slowly moving along. As kept remembering to keep thinking from a juvenile point of view, I thought that this book would be excellent for children who are struggling with identity problems or who are jealous or skeptical of traditional families. Looking at an entire juvenile audience for reading this book, I feel that this book would not be one that I would highly recommend for there are many more good books to read before choosing this one. This book would be a great book to try and get children to understand that families are about the people you spend your life with--the people that support and look out for your welfare. This book also shows juveniles that a 'traditional' family is not always the best family. This is shown with secondary character Shoogy, who has what the primary character Marley thinks is the perfect family. Even though shoogy's family looks perfect, Shoogy physically hurts herself because she is unhappy with her families perceived 'perfectness.' Marley struggles with trying to understand why Shoogy is unhappy with her family. She sees that Shoogy has her biological parents, while she has an aunt and uncle that has lied to her for years about who her 'real' parents are. This book does not have a traditional climax, so it leaves the reader thinking 'where is the excitement.' Heaven is a book that relies on deep personal thought. So I would only recommend this book to people who enjoy thinking about the quality of their life and how they would qualify and quantify their life. Overall, I would rate this book as okay, but not great.

    Heaven a excelent book.

    This book was amazing. i loved the way that she was always talking to her real father but she thought it was her uncle. I thought it was a good book for a man becuase there is a guy in tihs story who has to raise his child without a mother. it is a great book and i recomend it.

    This Book Was Alright

    This book was alright but it wasn't all that exciting for me, at least. I thought it really dragged on and didn't really have all that much of a point other than to tell you about all the problem's of a 14-year-old girl who just found out she was adopted. The only part that I thought was good was the ending. You'll probably like this book only if you like to read about other people's problems.
