I read this as a 46 year old adult and I just didn't get why it
I read this as a 46 year old adult and I just didn't get why it received this award. I don't think I read it as a teen but I really don't remember. It definitely wasn't the worst book I'd read, there were moments of interest for me, but I just couldn't give it a high rating. That being said, many people seemed to like it, so read it if it sounds interesting. It did sound and look interesting to me but it didn't pull me through it quickly.Was this review helpful?

This book was mediocre!
This author, Irene Hunt pulled you into this book by numerous things. I know I was put in tears a few times as well. In the beginning Julie Trailer was 7 years old when her mother passed away and was forced to move in with her aunt Cordelia, who lived out in the country. The book ends when Julie is 17. During these 10 years, she learns to live with the loss of her mother, the embarrassment through school, friend issues and love.In the beginning Julie absolutely despises having to move in with her aunt in the country. She comes to find out that the kids in the neighborhood don't really like her. She goes through a depression sort of thing as well. Later on down the road she gets the chance to move in with her father, but finds out he got married and didn't want to. The main reason was because she became so close to her aunt. If you like to hear about a twisty turning life, here's the book for you. It may be hard to understand for young aged kids. It is a good teenage or young adult book. Struggles through life, love, compassion, etc is all in this book. I know I fell in love with it about the second chapter. Overall, I do recommend this book to teenage (girls) mostly and young adults. This was probably one of my favorite books I have read this year.Was this review helpful?
