Are you a foster child? Well in this book, a teenage girl named Veronica (Ronnie), takes the time and explains to us her problems in school and at her foster home. She tells us what she has to go through each and every day. This book is made for the teenage group because they can probably relate to some of the problems Veronica has. This book is for people with a heart because you should be able to feel Veronica¿s problems and struggles right along with her. In her life everyone thinks she is weird and won¿t give her a chance. Finally she finds someone to give her a chance and be her friend, but that person turns out to be even worse than Veronica. She pulls a gun on one of Veronica¿s friends. The way the book is written is great to. You can always feel emotion at any point in the book. You know when something bad is about to happen. You know when your about to be hit with something really hard. The book makes you want to be a character so you can tell that person not to do whatever their about to do. The voice of the book changed a lot to. It would go from serious to sad and from happy to crushed. It would sometimes go to silly but mostly stayed serious. I find that a good thing because if it was too silly you wouldn¿t take anything in the book seriously. The content and plot of the book was great. They worked together great. The plot gave a lot of information on Veronica¿s problems. You knew where she was left when she was younger and why she couldn¿t go to a place called Lancaster. The plot helped the book a lot because when she went to Lancaster you weren¿t lost on why she didn¿t want to go there. Everything above concludes my reasoning on why this book is recommended for the teenage group and people with hearts.
I checked this book out from a public library, expecting it to be pretty good, at least. But I was very surprised of how good it was! I read it in one day straight, and I am now planning on buying it. It is about a thirteen year old girl named Veronica (and goes by Ronnie), who's been switched around in foster care since she was eleven because of her impulsive lying and stealing. Her mother abandoned her at the age of eleven, and took Ronnie's little half-brothers along with her mom's good-for-nothing boyfriend. Now Ronnie's foster mom is lady named Alison, who is also a therapist. But while here with Alison, she gets into plenty of trouble in so many ways. She becomes friends with Paige, a rich, pretty, and stuck-up girl who Ronnie's only friend told her, 'Paige is the bitch of the school. You don't want to be friends with her.' But yet, Ronnie does, and ends up with more than she can handle, being friends with Paige and the popular crowd in public, but secretly, still friends with Cat, the girl Paige told her to stay away from. Later, an oppurtunity for Ronnie arises: be adopted by Alison, or go to Alaska to live with the mother who once abandoned her? Pamela A. Lowell is a very good author, and I would definitely reccomend this book to anyone.
