Did we miss something on diversity?

Good book

The only negative things about this book are the swear words, for example, there is an instance where the f word is spelled out. Otherwise, the story was very appealing. I read this book when I was 8, and looked up to high schoolers. The protagonist in this story becomes an invisible ghost, but still has a happy ending. This teaches kids that sometimes seemingly impossible dreams come true, and not to give up on hope. Bonus: the appearance of the book is very pretty, and 8 year old me loved the pink floral details everywhere.

This book was amazing I personally have read it over ten times and have purchased the continuations. I think it gets to high schoolers a lot more because they can relate to feelings of the characters. Some things you just can't learn in school.
