Recommended for: Anyone
Read in October, 2008

Martha Doyle was a just an average girl until a classmate of hers named Olive died in an accident. Olive's mom brings Martha a journal page of Olive saying"She is the nicest girl in my class." From that day on, Martha just couldn't stop thinking about Olive. She and her family visits their granny Godbee, meets Jimmy Mannings and more. It's really easy to reveal what's going to happen next, but the story flowed really well and I think Martha's feelings were very well-expressed and described. It's not a big book, it's sweet and simple. Anyone who doesn't have much patience reading big books should start out with this one, I am sure you won't regret it.
