This story is about girl named Kat Randall and her dog named Cheddar. Kat thinks she can hear her dog's opinion by hearing Cheddar thump her hind leg. And I can't forget Mrs.Lawrence, little old lady Lawrence. She is forgetting about what she does yesterday.Plus she doesn't know how to drive, that's where her problem starts. This story takes place in a small town. So Kat is going to just go to 7th grade, the night before she goes to school her dog, Cheddar, gets run over. That's it Kat thinks her life is over. She is thinking, wow how could someone not see my dog crossing the street and just run her over! Guess who has run Cheddar over? That's right Mrs. Lawrence!! Kat immediately hates her, thinking there is no way ever to forgive her! Kat is in school, first day and she just has to visit Cheddar. Kat doesn't know what to do, or how to get there. So she acts almost without thinking, and "borrows" a bike. Her image is drastically changed.

Throughout It Only Looks Easy, Kat builds a friendship and a bond with Mrs.Lawrence. She figures out she has Alzheimer disease and Kat kind of feel bad about it. Many people can probably relate to how Kat feels when her dog gets run over. The description is wonderful, about every little detail that happens. You can really get in to the character of Kat and how she feels about everything. I also really like how Kat has over come herself and tried to help someone she doesn't like with homework. Kat is helping and nice. This book is all about life and friendship.
