I think that the author’s writing was powerful. It makes you think about things. It also makes you feel things when you read it. I felt bad for Melinda while I was reading the book, and I think that this helped the author show how hard it is if you don’t express your emotions.
I think that this was a really good book. I would recommend it to people who like realistic fiction with realistic problems. I think it would be better for older kids than younger kids because of some scary concepts and moments. Overall, I think that it was a good book and that people would benefit from reading it.
