it was ok
Read in January, 2007

Just before Martha Boyle's summer vacation she finds out about the death of a girl in her class named Olive. Olive was quiet and kind of kept to herself. The two girls weren't really friends but after Olive's death Martha began to wonder why not. The theme of this book was good but I really didn't like the language. Some of the characters were a little crude and I felt that there should have been more of a connection to Olive throughout the book. I did like the end though. It was a nice conclusion where Martha was able to find peace and give somethign back to a girl she wished she would have known.
