Amazing!

This book was so sad, I have to admit I cried.
This book has adventure, sadness, fun, and few parts, inappropriate. This is so well written. I recommend it!

very well written

this story is written through a young girl's eyes, her relationship with her sister, parents, society. It addresses loss in a very touching way and how a young child copes with it. I cried and loved this book every minute.
