** spoiler alert ** In a way, I LOVED this book. In a way not. My biggest peeve with it is that she prefaces the book by telling you the photos at the beginning of each chapter are the basis for the story. The story to go along with some of the pictures is a stretch and drives me crazy. But other than that... tough things going on in life from the perspective of a little girl is really interesting and it's well written- probably easy enough for a kid to read, but "adult" enough for adults to stay focused. The ending almost made me cry, wish she'd ended it a bit differently- some follow-up on Jacob, but thats ok. Overall, a very good read. Makes you think.
