    A Very Sad Story

    Althought this is a wonderful story, the last parts of the book are so sad that they make me cry and my throat hurt. I really feel Emily's pain when her sisters adopted father rejects her and the people in the orphanage town treat the orphans like their lower then dirt. Althought I enjoyed most of the story, the most sad part of the story was when Emily was pushed and killed. I really recommend it.

    What a Great Book!

    Nobody¿s Daughter b Nobody¿s Daughter, teaches a tremendous life lesson through an action packed, suspensful story which everyone would love. When Emily¿s parents die, she goes to live with her Great Aunt Mabel, a strict, noble Lathrop. Lathrops are good people, and live a fortunate life, unlike Hasbrooks, like Emily¿s careless father. Soon her Aunt dies also, and Emily has no where to go but an orphanage. As she and her friends are harshly harrassed by city girls, Emily feels a need to leave. She has no idea if anyone will help her, or if she will find a place to live, but she figures anything will be better than the Austin home. You will really enjoy the book Nobody¿s Daughter, a story which makes a great impact on life.

    A Great Book to Read

    I¿m 13 years old and I read this book for school and it was an awesome book. I thought it was so good and I would recommend this book to any young girl. I personally don¿t like to read but this book I would over and over again. This is my favorite book ever. And toward the end it started making me cry. So if you like to read good books, this is the book for you

    who's daughter nobody's daughter

    Who¿s daughter? Nobody¿s daughter. The book I read was called nobody¿s daughter it was about a girl and her parents die and she is left to live with her aunt and then her aunt eventually dies, sad eh, then she gets shipped of to an orphanage and is treated in the cruelest way, and because she lives in an orphanage nobody likes her (that does not live in the orphanage)except the Liberian. She has 2 friends in the orphanages that are really close to her. Well one bit of information is she has a sister some where and to find more read it. Have you ever seen the little princess or read it, well it is kind of the same as this. They both go to an orphanage and are treated bad that both know that they have someone in this world for them. So if u like horror, action guns and more do not read this book it is the total opposite. That is me for ya, I don¿t like that stuff this was a great book and if you are not in to the gross guns and horror than you should give it a try!
