When I started reading it, I was upset by the subject matter.I almost threw the book away. It was very upsetting for a nine year old to go through the things she did. Although the ending is good, it was sad.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book, number two is on the way and I can't wait to read it. A warning to some people, this book does have disturbing content for some. Keep reading the feed backs and make up your own mind.
I read to edify/ bring me closer to the chacter of God and/or to escape for a while and in the process I want to experience joy or challange. This book did neither. It was a story that never really became better; although written well. I fully know this is life for some. I did not want this type of tragedy to fill in my sparce "free time." I read it and tossed it into the garbage can.
