Im in 6th grade I thought i would read this book because of the awesome blurb! and ounce I got started i couldn't put it down!!! Im only 11 but this book is going to be my favorite for a long time to come! its filled with drama worries laughtor hard work and some sad moments to. But i think thats what gives this book the life like feel. i would recommend this book to all of my friends, no dought!
My son was assigned this book in school. He is in the eighth grade. I picked it up one day and couldn't put it down. It has no great adventure, no heros or villians. Instead it reels you in with the truth. Very believable and heartwarming. I was very surprised and more so pleased to find that my 14 year old rap-loving son also enjoyed the book.
This book glued me to its pages and proves that the author writes for all ages -Megan 12yrs. (;
