One of the best Audiable books I have purchased. My boom club really enjoyed discussing the courage this girl showed
That she never gave up trying under terribly cruel situations.
It made me feel stronger and realize how fortunate I am. It made cry.
A great book for an English teacher at high school level to teach from. A must read for schools not sure
I didn't see anything to tell me this was for children, but it must be. The narration is like reading to a 3 year old and the story is nothing new.
