Due to the complexity and the maturity of the book, this book would be best for students in 5th to 8th grade. This book deals with a lot of hard topics that could be tough for children to fully understand. Sal’s narrative style is kind of hard to understand because she bounces around a lot from story to story and you are not sure whether she is speaking to her grandparents or if she is thinking in her head.
Overall, this book this book can be relatable to students who are trying figure themselves out. This book story also demonstrates that sometimes things do not always turn out as we hope they do.
This book has it all and will keep you reading the whole way. All the way to the very last page. Well thats what happened to me. I enjoyed this book all the way and recommend it to lots. I enjoyed this book greatly. All i have to say is that if you dont like it thats your fault.
It's a novel that does a masterful job of exploring the topics of love, loss, and identity. It's quirky and powerful. Many of my students have already experienced at least one significant loss in their lives and they were able to work through many of their emotions with the help of this book. At the end of the novel, I had a few students in tears and the classroom erupted in applause. I am looking forward to reading this novel again with my new students.
I will not spoil the novel for you though, so I highly recommend that you read it for yourself.
