really liked it
Read from October 20 to 25, 2010

I really like this book! Though it was a little sad at times how people treated Gibby, the main character, I found this book to be a bit funny. She might be a little brain damaged,a little slow, and not quite remember everything, but she is certainly not stupid. This book touched on just about everything... family, relationships, secrets, miracles, abuse, love and race just to name a few. I got a little teary eyed in two spots on this book, and I think that any book that can spark emotion from its reader is worth recommending! One of my favorite things about this book is Gibby's jumbled up brain and the authors use of Homophones (man, I had to dig back in to my grade school English for that word!).I also love Gibby's literal interpretations of everyday sayings ;-)
