really liked it
Read in December, 2010

Sharon Creech always has interesting book covers. Walk Two Moons was a good cover, and Heartbeat. They all represent what the main story is about. I like how the paper is flying out of the journal though.
Normally, I would ignore books that were told from a journal, but more often now, I find myself reading something like that. Right now, I'm reading a journal based book called Runaway. I like them both though.
The story is pretty interesting. Carl Ray comes to live with them, and things turn upside down from a boring summer to an exotic summer. If exotic is even the right word.
I find the plot to be kind of predictable though. I knew who Carl Ray's father was before he even told anyone. It was kind of easy to 'tell the fortune' on that one. Especially when he was crying at the funeral. I mean, you find your real dad, then he dies? What a load of crap.
But, that's what made the story interesting! All the little curves and turns.
