really liked it

Really good but I'm taking off a star because the parents dying thing was so cliche. Like no family and depressed is just a common theme in so many books today. Though the other parts of the plot made up for it.

Here is an example of the cliche parents gone book:

"My mother ran off when I was 7. My father passed away last week. I have to stay with a weird foster lady who wants to be my mother but I hate her. I never talk at school, everyone thinks I'm weird. There is a girl who always tries to be my friend but I hate her and she is nothing like me."

(fake) Spoiler alert: She befriends her foster mother, becomes best friends with the annoying girl, tries to find her mother with the help of the friend and the mother doesn't want her and she realizes that her true home is with the weird foster mother who ends up adopting her. Oh! And there is a boy who she likes who she likes who kisses her in the end. SOOOOO SUPRISING *eyeroll*.
