    " this is the worst book i have ever read i thought that it was very boring and dull. belle is very confusing first she leaves and next she does it on purpose and i thought it was very stupid. She married a guy she doesnt like and she leaves her son Woodrow. "

    " This is a really good book, so well written. The characters are well-drawn and interesting, another example showing that good writing is good writing, whether for teens, adults, or children. "

    " When her cousin Woodrow moves in next door, Gypsy is certain she is going to get to the bottom of her Aunt Belle's disappearance. What she gets instead is a new friend. Woodrow, despite his backwoods appearance, is kind, funny, and can hold his own in a fistfight, if it comes to that. As they share secrets and defend one another, they come to share the tragedies in their lives as well, helping each other cope. "

    " Good YA novel. Friendship in small southern town in 1954. It's about appreciating the internal over the external parts of people. A hidden tragedy is revealed but its not too overly mature. Good for 14 years and up I would think. "
