Very Touching

First of all, this book was very well written. The voice from the author is great and the line breaks make it even better. The story teaches a lesson to women that you should never give up just because an unexpected obstacle popped up in your life. Jolly's situation is ...
First of all, this book was very well written. The voice from the author is great and the line breaks make it even better. The story teaches a lesson to women that you should never give up just because an unexpected obstacle popped up in your life. Jolly's situation is still very complicated and is still seen today, it really opened my eyes because the story had so much detail to it. I defenitely recommend this book to all kinds of readers.

    I Also Recommend:

    Really -~~**DEEP**~~-

    This book is actually really meaningful. It sort of opens your eyes to life is in all communities. It definitely makes you rethink, you know, single mother living and the poverty in America. Not a lot of depth, or I guess plot structure, in the book. But its definitely satire and irony as an INP (You'd understand if you're in school, or my school) which is something you can appreciate. Definitely meaningful. Go ahead and read it!

    An Intereting Read

    Very detailed, interesting story about the struggles of a girl that struggles between her grades and her babysitting job. Not a bad book, but not my type of reading.
