really liked it
Read from May 25 to 26, 2012

Anne has created a great tale that told through a childs eyes. a frustrated child who has a horrible time learning to keep her mouth shut.
I love how Anne set the story up made us feel for Mary and hate Gwen and feel anger towards the parents. The novel shows that sometimes we see things in a clouded way. Some times when we're younger we are going through all this stuff and we sometimes think that our parents dont know that we a struggling. I think that this book shows that they really do notice but dont know what to do, after all they are only human.

The novel was a really quick simple read and while i would not say that Anne is up there with my Laurie Halse Anderson but she has a similar writing style where she gets her words across in her own style, not the industries style, i do recommend this book if you like Laurie's novels.

long story short, i loved this novel and i think you will too.
