Feb. 2017 library book group read. I know this book is about a 10 yr. old boy with a deformity. That being said, I just couldn't get into it that much. Good message for kids and a good book for middle school kids to read.

*I acknowledge that this opinion will not be shared by 90% or more of readers.

I really enjoyed this book and really liked the message that it had. The reason for four stars is because I just didn't feel like I could believe the whole story. But, for some reason I really liked the book and wanted to keep reading.

Yes, and they are reading "The Dog Who Danced" by Susan Wilson right now. I already love this book. I loved Susan Wilson's other book called "One Good Dog"
