Taylor Sukys I didn't really cry I teared up because it reminded me of a recent loss of my 9 yr old cousin so it was like a hard book to read, But I did not like it at all!!!

that's unfortunate that you didn't like it, but I can understand since it brought up sad memories.. however, I really liked this book.

it's written from the perspective of a 10 year old girl who's brother died, and it's about her trying to cope... if you read it you'd probably understand better--it's just so brilliantly written and makes you really feel what the little girl is feeling

About a girl with cerebal palsy which makes her look like a retard when she is really smart. I could explain but I bet it would sound better than how I describe it. http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/11...


Shermel This book had me in tears. I was depressed the whole day.


Hannah I almost did :)

Out of my mind! teared me up as well!
Delaney, read it! Its about a special ed girl whos really smart but cant show it and then she finds a computer thing that can help her... competition... winning... losing... blah blah blah i cant tell you, read it and find out yourself its better and interesting that way.


HollyR Chew I cried. I lost a nephew at a young age so it was very close to home. I love the analogy of using an umbrella for self-protection.


Sarah SAD

Delaney, it is really offensive to refer to someone mentally challenged as a "retard." Educate yourself and be more considerate.


Bailey I cried when I read the book. It was so sad!!!
