    I love Sonya Sones books, but this was simply not her best! Although her poetry never ceases to captivate a reader, the story was not as interesting as others. If you want to read a story you can finish in an hour, then I recommend this book.

    Its not really that great :/

    This book wasnt that good. Honestly it could have been been extended some. The book could have been extended by adding more about John. The author kinda just stuck him in the story. He visited the sister once and after that, they dont mention him again. The author could have talked about how John changed Cookie and her family and they started growing closer to the sister. This book was way to short. It was an interesting plot but it wasnt used well.

    BOTTOM LINE: This is more of a short read definately not worth tons of money.

    This book is so good!

    I loved reading this book, i actually learned smething from it. I learned to love my sister because if she went crazy then I would feel so horibble for how I treated her in the begining. This book is very heart warming you. I could read it over and over and over again. My favorite part was when she got lost in the hospital andone of the patients showed her the way out and she didnt know she was a patient she atually thought she was one of the doctors. Then the patient stuckher tounge out at her when she got on the elevator. This bookis very funny and sad at the same time. I Love It !

    STOP PRETENDING

    I THINK THE BOOK STOP PRETENDING IS A VERY GREAT BOOK. THE WAY THE AUTHOR USED FALLING POEMS TO DEPLICT THE STORY OF HER TIME OF WHEN HER OLDER SISTER BECAME MANIC DEPRESSANT IS VERY POWERFUL. I HIGHLY RECOMEND THIS BOOK FOR GRADES 6TH-9TH, BUT IT IS ALSO HELPFULL FOR ANY AGE GROUP. I CONCUR TO ALL GOOD REVIEWS ON THIS BOOK.
