This book is really great. I think Febbie has been through alot.For a little girl to go through what febbie has must have been pretty difficult because she is so young. Her mom isnt the best person in the world but you read the book to find out why.This girl is a really strong young female and i look up to her. Her grand mother took her in when her mother had to leave and for her grandma to do that is wonderful because she could have left her grand daughter all alone but she didnt and i look up to her to for that.
