For the first 50 pages or so, I had a lot of trouble connecting with the novel. But then, about the time Marisa finally gives in and talks to Alan, I started to get her. Her father is in the novel more, she starts to share her feelings more, and from then on I couldn't put down the book. I wanted her to succeed. She seemed so real with the challenges that many of our students are going through. I also loved the themes of education being the key to changing your situation and how much her teacher plays a role in her future- Ms. Ford makes an impact like we all hope we will. By the end of the novel, I was so glad that I read it.
