This novel reminded me of one of the many Grateful Dead songs that helped me through tragedy over the years, Black Peter. "Just want to have a little peace to die and a friend or two I love at hand...See here how everything lead up to this day and it's just like any other day that's ever been." Sometimes a day comes along that changes everything, steals the face right off your head and leaves nothing but your soul.

Great book, interesting ending. Not for young kids because the book is very confusing. I recommend the book for middle schoolers and high schoolers

I bought this book for my daughter after the author visited her school and because it was on the official summer reading list. She really enjoyed the book but it was way too short for her (fifth grade). I wish the good authors like Ms. Woodson would write some meaty books that the kids who love to read can sink their teeth into. It's hard to find books that advance readers who are 10,11,12 can read without the subject matter being to mature.
I got to the end of the book for a cliff hanger. Not sure if it was because it was on my kindle, but I wasn't sure if there would be a part two. Is there a sequel? Overall good read. I like the way the author depicts each character along with the sights and sounds.

Purchased for school. Didn't hear any complaints (and believe me I would) so assume they are happy.

I purchased this book for my son for an assignment. It arrived timely. Would not recommend this book if you are not crazy about your child reading a book with profanity. It is a good story. For this to be a children's book it is amazing that this author would choose to incorporate that language in this book just to impact the storyline or to get her point across. Other than that the book is fine. It arrived as promised.
