I loved this book!

This book made me think more about friendship.

These are topics conveyed typically by word of mouth. I'm glad to see someone put pen to paper to give readers, regardless of their ethnic background (as it can happen to anyone), an opportunity to learn more about the complexities of new experiences when your young, and being different.

Interesting Story!

I liked this book because the plot was interesting, and it was about something that I have never really thought about before.
