Another great piece of juvenile fiction from Sharon Creech. She uses free verse to great effect, not just as a gimmick, with living, breathing imagery and a real sensitivity to the mind of a twelve-year-old and the difficulties she faces growing up.

This was an AWESOME book! I was kind of surprised that it didnt make me cry though, because most of Sharon Creech's books do. But it was still a good read!
