This book was a fun, challenging, and emotional story. Told in first person, it deals with learning to understand how others are different than you.
I really liked most of the characters and am not sure of who my favorite was.

Easygoing, yet still nicely paced. It was filled with laughter and heartache and fun and excitement. The end climax snuck up on me, and it was so good!

This book encouraged me to be know kinder and more considerate of other people, while also learning to understand them more. Also
