Review this title!
Parent of a 9 and 11 year old Written byCub's Mom April 13, 2013

Very sad book

My 9 year old daughter says this book is super sad. It's a good story, so she finished the book, but was so saddened that she didn't understand why it had been recommended to her. Perhaps more appropriate for older readers.
