I thought this was a very thought provoking story. I enjoyed Janie's feelings and insights on her lifestyle changes. The author made me wonder what would happen next that would change her life. I thought that there was something special about this story. What made this book unique was that I almost felt like I was Janie, because she was very open with her feelings. Janie is a very interesting character. I think she puts suspense into the story. When I think this book can't get any more thought provoking, Janie puts another question into my head. I also felt sympathy for Janie. She is the only poor girl in her school. I thought about how bad I would feel if I was the poorest girl in my school.
Hands down, I would recommend this book to anybody, no matter what age. I have read this book many times, because I love the endless thoughts the author provokes. The more you read this page turning novel, the more you won't ever want to put it down.
