This was a nice little book to read. Not too short, but not too long. I believe that Angela Johnson produced a great book within a short page count. One thing I liked about this book, was the fact that it had several different stories going on at the same time-at sometimes it got confusing differentiating the stories from one another. I think this book would be a great book for readers who cannot read very well, but can still be relate-able. Spoiler Alert: I was pretty disappointed with how the book ended, because I wanted her to go and and at least talk to Cecil, but she never did, so that is why I gave this book three stars instead of four (if I could I would give it 2.5 stars). all in all it was an okay book to read.
