I think that we should read the book without buying it online I like the book it's just that we can read it without buying it online.
This 'verse' novel is an absolute heartbreaker. Clark gets right inside the head of Dawn. Dawn is in grade 6 and her best and longest friend has joined the style queens (read bitches), her mum and dad are fighting, and school and home are no longer the havens they once were. Dawn's journey broke my heart, because it was my journey through grade 6 - where friendships change, families can be in upheaval, and the year seems like it's never going to end.
Every day at the school gates Melissa banner (style queen) is surrounded by girls like a fan club.
Everyday she brings something new to show off - a hair clip, a magazine, lip gloss.

All the girls want to be style queens- except Dawn.Problem is, shes not sure what she wants.

But as everything in her life begins to change, Dawn learns sometimes not having the answers isn't such a bad thing at all.

This book is all about a girl (Dawn) who expresses her thoughts through poems. The whole book is written in poems. All the girls in Dawns school want to be style queens- except her. She doesn't know what she really wants.
As everything in her life starts to change, Dawn learns that sometimes not having the answers isn't such a bad thing.
A short little book written in verse that tells the story of a young girl. I was surprised at how much emotion the author managed to give each character. And I do admit tearing up as well.

If you get the chance to read it, do. It'll only take about five minutes.

Different kind of writing

Kind of a diary with a bit of poetry.

A little funny also
