Juliette gave me this book to read thinking I'd like it. She was right. It was difficult for me to get through, however.

I was bullied very similarly. I'm sure so many girls were in primary school. I too had a "Miranda Rainbow" I wanted to be. A girl with a backbone, flare, style, courage, everythign I wanted to be... I didn't have the friend outside of school. Despite problems in the friendship, that would have helped me.

I enjoyed the way this story went. It's a hard transition from primary school and being a full child to wading into pre-teen years and approaching the upper years in school. In school it's hard, out of school it's hard. Watching what the adult world can really be like as we walk ever closer to it. I think the way this book introduced that was realistic and, though hard, done well.

It brought me right back to my younger years. I'm glad there was a happy ending. For childrens and preteen books, those make me smile.
