WARNING! Stock up on tissues for this one. IMPERFECT SPIRAL by Debbie Levy combines the tragic death of a wonderful five year old boy, the guilt of a teenage babysitter, and illegal immigration into a hypnotizing page-turner. Little Humphrey Danker is hit and kill by a blue van on his way home from the park. His babysitter Danielle is crushed. She is assured by everyone, including Humphrey's parents, that the accident was not her fault, but as the weeks and months pass, she can't believe how much she misses the little guy. As a result of the accident, two issues take center stage. One is the safety of Quarry Road. Should there be streetlights, sidewalks, and crosswalks installed to do more to protect the children of the community? The other issue is illegal immigration. When it is discovered that the van driver, a longtime resident of the area, is in the U.S. without proper documentation, angry groups form demanding the removal of all these dangerous illegal aliens before they destroy the country. Danielle shares her story complete with her oppressive guilt about the accident, complicated friend and family issues, and her irrational fear of public speaking. Author Debbie Levy will impress her audience with this multi-layered story of love, blame, and justice.

In my school book order,this book came with a pack of tissues because it was supposed to be so sad. I missed deadline for the book order so I found it on my nook and bought it. Not that sad. I cried more when I watched Forrest Gump. Actually,I haven't cried at all!!!!!! I was acrually kinda looking forward to a tearjerker,but this most certainly wasn't it. It isn't nessecarily a bad book,just not sad. So if you enjoy a good sob story,this isn't really for you. Thanks for reading! Hope I helped with your book selection!!
