really liked it

Guys. The cover. I loved it. So pretty, so well done. The butterfly wings and the brace at the same time? Totally well done.

I have a couple of things to say about the book itself.

First, I have to say that Rachel was a bit whiny.
Next, I don’t appreciate their line “Moms are the worst.” Really girls? If it wasn’t for mom’s you wouldn’t be here. Give them some slack. And some respect! They have been here like forever longer than you have!
I don’t understand why they didn’t evaluate more about the surgery. If it was such a strong point about not wanting to have to have it, and needing to wear the brace, there should be a bit more fear, or facts about it I think.
Other then that, I really enjoyed this book! The story was well done. I really liked their emphasis on the need for communication between everyone, kids and parents as well as friends.
Tate is such a coward.

It’s your average 7th grade story. Except add a back brace on top of that. Makes it a bit more dramatic.
It was very realistic though, and I like that. Overall, I would recommend this for my friends between 12 and 16. :)
