it was amazing
bookshelves: first-reads
Read from May 14 to 15, 2012

I received this book as a first read. Lets just say, I am so glad that I did. This novel was so heartfelt that I transported to the 1950s. I was Gabriella, a child wise and bright beyond her 12 years on this earth. Gabriella befriended those that people ignored or not look a two. She is a child who looks at a person and not seeing the color of their skin the age on their face but the character that grows within them. At the end I think Gabriella found who she truly was and what she truly wanted. This is one of those books that you can just see as a classic years down the road.
