This is a very good book. But parents beware it has some pretty graphic stuff on molestation and child abuse. My 11 year old said it was one of the best books he read and scored 100% on his AR test. I listened along with him and was pretty set back by the molestation of his sister by her father and not wanting to go on with the book. The author does try to approach it in a manner that has tact for older elementary children but I would not recommend for younger children. Our school has it as 4th grade level. My opinion would be more of 7th/8th grade level. But that is only me. As I said my 11 year old said it was one of the best books he has ever read and he aced the AR it is up to you, but I suggest the parent listens to it first.
Love audible. Speak four languages
I finally had the audacity to buy this audible. The reason is I have perfect memory to which I want to accomplish by reading books that I use to read when I was in middle school. This was one of them that I have read during middle school. I am currently in a university school and my gosh listening to this audiobook made me go to the past of middle school when I used to read a lot of books especially Sharon Draper books. I want to accomplish by reading the series of this book and as well copper sun. Also remind myself that I want to re-read my middle school books as I did when I first pick up these books. I just had that feeling to go to the past of my middle school.
You should definitely listen or read this it's the best book I've read please do listen to this trust me its awesome
