I first read this book when I was in the 5th grade in my school's library. I loved it so much that I stole it.As she tries to cope with her thoughts about death by writing poems and talking with her elderly friend, Mrs. Briscoe, Dinah Seabrook wonders about the importance of the seventh-grade elections, the school play, and even her relationship with Nick Tribble.I've given it 4 stars for the simple fact that this book paved the way for the many years I have spent reading. It made me love books, and I love 'Dinah Forever' for that.
I liked this book, but i also found Dinah a worrier over things that don't matter. her relationship with her bf Nick and her friend Suzanne are very touching and fun and wild! READ THIS BOOK!
This book was so true, sad and just plain good. Dinah is a charmingly realistic character. Claudia Mills writes books like no one else.
