Debi It made me happy...It made my skin tingle with the illicit thoughts of being touched behind the ear or inside the elbow for the first time...It made me cringe when Park's mom wanted to do a makeover...10th grade is a tear jerker. This doesn't pull any punches and it doesn't miss a thing.
Mia It's not DEPRESSING. It will make you cry. You will think about it for days. But you will forget. That's the routine. But this book also makes you laugh out loud and smile rare smiles.
