I really like this book because surprises pop up when you don?t suspect it. My favorite character is Isabel. I really found out that Isabel is very interesting. She goes through so much and still comes home with a happy face because she knows that she has to take care of her family. I think this book is unique because it?s not like any of the other books I have read. It has such a sad tone to it. I really felt bad for Isabel. It made me wonder if people really do go through stuff like that. But it is also a good and fun book to read? Like when Isabel? oops! I guess you just have to the book yourself. The author does an excellent job of describing by using plenty of details so that the reader can make a picture in their mind.
I recommend this book for 6th through 8th grade girls to read. It really makes you appreciate what you have.
