liked it

I liked this book but not as much as Pam Munoz Ryan's other novels. I did like how the story started out with Naomi being a shy and quiet girl and in the end being a strong girl. The story was heartfelt with how the children were abandoned but they found the best love with their grandma anyways. The mother was horrible as she was only using her children, in my opinion she needs therapy from all her problems. I really enjoyed the hispanic aspect of the novel. I have studied the spanish culture for over seven years and so I always enjoy reading about it. Overall this book has the ability to connect with many different types of people. Those who have a hard family life, Spanish culture background, and those who are trying to become stronger. Also, with how Owen is disabled but developed coping mechanisms with his tape usage. It's a good story and is delivered in an easy and interesting text.
