Still cleaning up some of the books I should have read years ago...

This would have been a childhood favorite if I'd read it as a child. The friendship aspects of the story and the beginnings of the coming of age of Jess make this a great story.

I had no idea of how this story would turn out and I'll admit that it took me by surprise but I can see why it's so popular. Given the age of the target audience I felt that the critical scenes were deftly handled and that reading this book would help any child faced with dealing with some of the issues presented here.

Given the story, I'm now very curious as to who Lisa Hill was/is that the author's son wanted her name to share the honors with his in the dedication. Mystery solved...
