I really liked this book, and i loved the style it was written in. it was about a girl who didnt really have friends, so she sat on the beach and took notes on the people that came and went. then, she would write a fantasy story that was based on what she saw. The thing that i loved about this book was that each chapter was about the things that she saw, and then at the end, it was her fantasy story. i could actually relate the "real" things she saw with the fantasy that she wrote. it shows how authors of fantasy books take real life and change it to something unrealisic. i recommend this book to anyone. it is a really good book and a fairly easy read, so if u want to take a break form the hard stuff, i highly recommend it!!!
