    I knew it

    Shron g. Flake's books are about girls. But she seems to really blossem with boys books. Between this book and bang she seems to know more about a boys life than a boy. But iyts the girls books that made me foll in love with her. Without money hungry, begging for change, and who am i without him, my life wouldn't be complete

    Very authentic read. I read this with my middle school students.

    Very authentic read. I read this with my middle school students. A little of the content is a bit mature, but it is all information that is relevant to their lives. My students loved it and went searching for more novels by Sharon Flake.
