I like this book because I just couldn`t stop reading. Even though it is sad it is also exciting. I like the character because I would have done what she did if I were in her shoes-keep on fighting for what is best. Karen Hesse is a great author. The way she writes is different from the other books I have read.
I recommend this book for 5th and 6th graders. This book is very sad, but it is very exciting. If you like exciting books, this book is for you!
