One of my favourites when I was kid. I loved this book! I can still grasp the emotions I felt throughout reading it. The characters are truly captivating and the ending blew me away.

A tragically unknown book (Why!? It's so good!) that I quite literally read to pieces when I was a kid. Find a copy for yourself immediately.

One of the first books I read as a young adult and have since read it numerous times over.

I feel so bad I lost my copy and can't get a copy anywhere now.

Did anyone besides me and my sixth grade best friend read this book? I remember being obsessed with it...I wanted it to be my life.

I think the fact that I remember this book and at least a few of the details says a lot. I thought it was mighty interesting when I was about 10
