I would lend this book to a friend!

Review by Ruben

I liked this book because we got to know the characters really well. The people who would enjoy this book are people interested in stories about friends and family.

This was a very sad book. Do not read if you are very sensitive.

Review by tkdgirl08

I like how the main character has a choice. be a friend, or go follow the crowd. this kind of made me reflect on a quote. “if you are given the choice between being right and being kind, choose kind.” I’m not quite sure who said that, but it’s good advice. It also reminded me of something one of my teachers taught us. Being weird is good. if somebody calls you weird, take it as a compliment.
