Helpful Score: 3
My sister teaches 7th grade language arts & was reading this book on a road-trip as a possible book for her class this year. She loved it, and upon her recommendation, I ordered it in from this site. I loved it, too! It is a tear-jerker -- your heart goes out to the main character who has come from such an abusive home. It is a wonderful story -- have your tissues nearby.
