Without Tess

This was a great book that never got boring, and was one of the best books I've read in a while. Girls my age (10-13) will fall in love with this book just as I did. Be warned: Very sad, and there are some bad words, unfortunately is in it. She flips one person off, and there is a harmless kissing scene at the end. I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did. Enjoy!
