The great "to young"

This book to me was a little young for me. I am a little to old for this book but for younger kids this book was kind of funny. Hope you like it :)

Love it!!!

I love this book. I read it when I was 7 and I still read it today. I love Naomi because she is a lot like me and Lizzy (Naomi's friend) reminds me of my best friend. I would suggest it to any child.

Bland, awful plotline

Everything is appropriate in this book, but the content is horrible. I thought Sharon Creech was supposed to be good, but I guess I was wrong with this one. There is no sign of plotline in this book, and it just seems randomized and poorly put together. I don't even know why this was even published.
