It's pretty good and a sweet story, but some parts are kind of bad.

Review by RuffRuff

This book was a little bit boring and also I thought it ended kind of abruptly. Still you can definitely get caught up in the book. Would reccomend.

A Heartwarming Story About Life And Finding Yourself

Review by NettaAmani

its great! this story has really inspired me, and it is very good. It is about life, loss, and setting your personal best. it teaches us that even if you feel like a nobody, you are somebody. i would recommend it to age 9-12. i think the end is a good plot twist, but if you want to find out what you think of it you should read it! ok this is long so bye!
