    ITS THE BEST BOOK EVER !

    I THINK THIS IS THE BEST BOOK EVER BECAUSE, IT TEACHES THAT LIFE HAS MORE IMPORTANT THINGS TO IT THAN YOURSELF. YOU DON'T ALWAYS HAVE TO THINK ABOUT YOURSELF THERE IS THINGS MORE IMPORTANT TO LIFE THAN YOURSELF. THINGS LIKE YOUR FAMILY MEMBERS ARE REAL IMPORTANT. TRU ACTS REAL SELFISH IN THE BEGINNING OF THE STORY, SHE ONLY THINKS ABOUT HERSELF AND ABOUT KNOW ONE ELSE BUT HERSELF. SHE ALWAYS THINKS THAT EDDIE IS IN HER WAY AND, SHE ALWAYS SCREAMS AT EDDIE. BUT WHAT SHE DOSEN'T REALIZE IS THAT SHE IS HURTING EDDIES FEELINGS. EVERY TIME THAT SHE GETS MAD AT EDDIE SHE, SCREAMS AT HER MOM AS IF ITS HER MOM'S FAULT THAT EDDIE IS MENTALLY CHALLENGED. I HAVE A MENTALLY CHALLENGED BROTHER AND UNLIKE TRU I DON'T FEEL EMBARESSED OF HIM BEING MY BROTHER. IN FACT I AM PROUD OF HIM BECAUSE, EVERYDAY THAT PASSES HE IMPROVES MORE AND MORE. THIS STORY IS REAL SAD AND IT HAS A BEUTIFUL ENDING. TRU FINALLY REALIZES THAT THINGS ARE NOT ONLY ABOUT HER. IN THE BOOK TRU WANTS TO BECOME A STAR AND HER FRIEND TELLS HER ABOUT A CONTEST TO WIN A CHANCE TO MAKE HER OWN TV SHOW. SHE HAS TO ENTER A TAPE ABOUT A SHOW THAT SHE WOULD LIKE TO ENTER IN THE CONTEST. SHE STARTS LOOKING FOR IDEAS FOR THE TITLE OF HER TV SHOW AND DECIDES TO MAKE THE SHOW ABOUT HER BROTHER EDDIE. SHE CALLS IT A DAY IN THE LIFE OF EDDIE. WHEN SHE ENTERS THE CONTEST SHE WINS AND SHE GETS HER TAPE SHOWN ON A TV SHOW. I DON'T WANT TO GIVE EVERYTHING AWAY BUT ITS MY FAVORITE BOOK. I STRONGLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK TO EVERYBODY AND ESPECIALLY TO A PERSON WHO HAS A MENTALLY CHALLENGED BROTHER OR SISTER, OR JUST A MENTALLY CHALLENGED FAMILY MEMBER LIKE I DO. ITS GREAT AND I ALSO RECOMMEND FOR YOU TO SEE THE MOVIE ON DISNEY CHANNEL. ITS REAL GOOD AND I GUARANTEE THAT ITS OUGHT TO MAKE YOU CRY. SO TO CONCLUDE THIS REVIEW, I THINK YOU SHOULD READ THIS BOOK BECAUSE, IN MY OPINION ITS THE BEST BOOK I'VE EVER READ.

    If It's Anything Like the Movie...

    I haven't read it yet, but I did see the movie on Disney Channel, and if this book is anything like it, then it has to completely rock.

    A fantastic quick read!!!!!

    I throughly enjoyed this book. It takes you into a the electronic diary of a 12 year old girl named Tru. She is worried about her developementaly delayed brother, Eddie. She also makes up stories about her dad who left them, so obviously this girl has some issues. Tru really wants her own tv show, so she enters a contest for a spot on the public access channel. To find out if she wins, you'll have to buy this excelent book yourself!!!!!!!!!!!

    Tru Walker kicks major butt!

    When I first got this book I could not put it down. Trudy lives with her mother and twin brother with special needs. She makes up stories of her father to ease the pain of him being gone. She sticks next to her brother and takes care of him. I have never seen anyone have such unconditional love for another person. She has a huge longing for a t.v. show and she gets it. Her life was filled with so much talent and love, she needed to share her story with the rest of the world.

    Janet Tashjian FAN!

    I've read Marty Frye, Private Eye and THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO LARRY and then i read this book and I plan to soon read Multiple Choice. but this book was probley 6 or 7 on top list. I like how Janet Tashjian makes a serious subject like Mentaly Chalenged people and kind of make it humerous and sad at the same time

    I Think You Will Enjoy This Book

    This is a great book because it's funny but also sad at the same time. I first saw the movie based on the book. (It was never brought to theaters. It's only showed on The Disney Channel) If you enjoy sad and humorous books you should read it. I reccomend it for ages 9-12.
