My goddaughter read this book and recommended that I read it. It is a pretty nice read; very thoughtful plot but I felt was a little slow paced. I also thought the children talked more like adults in the book; or said things that little children just don't say. An average read that's good for a rainy day...

I really liked this book. It tells I should he greatful that I have a mom and a dad to take care of me. And I'm lucky to be living in a house not a car. This book told me that your sister and brother and your family is going to be there for you whenever you need them. And this book also tells that what happens if do something bad that you know its bad and you still do it

This bog was really good but it took me a long time to finish it. Some parts were boring some were very exciting.

I found this book very enjoyable to read. It reminded me of when I used to sneak around my own neighborhood with my little brother, plotting all sorts of things that usually resulted in the extreme annoyance of one of our neighbors and me being grounded. O'Connor really does understand the scheming mind of the eleven-year-old girl.
