This was great, but for those people who think boys are better than girls and girls are better than boys, please remember that both genders are equal. Sure, I'd love to believe I am the coolest guy in the world, but I'm not. Anyways, this was a great book.

This book is about: a girl who saves her mother from dying, a girl who saves her brother and dad from going to war, and much, much more!!! Maybe you could ask your mom if you could get it for your birthday. I hoped i helped. Bye!!! : )
