really liked it

I enjoyed this book because it talked about how losing someone in a family can make living together brutal. It also told the story in a 1st person point of view. I don't know what i would do if I would have been in Cookie's position, she went through many challenges. She had to have alot of emotional strength to deal with everything that was happening, because she was there to support her sister through out the whole book. She took all the bullying her friends did to her, like when they passed the note making fun of her because her sister had gone crazy. I gave this book a 4 instead of a 5 because i felt deprived of a well written ending.

Alissa "Stop pretending.
Right this minute.
Don't you tell me
you don't know me.
Stop this crazy act
and show me
that you haven't changed
Stop pretending/ you're deranged."

"When I was lost
you were the one
who found me
Now you're the one who's lost
and I can't find you anywhere."

"It seems
like Sister is the crazy one,
but what
if it's really the other way around
and it's
actually
me who's the crazy one,
only I'm so crazy, I think it's her?"

All very good quotes that demonstrate the confusion that cookie experinces, it also displays the well written poetry in this novel.


Maria "When I was lost
you were the one
who found me
Now you're the one who's lost
and I can't find you anywhere."
