  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Piper Seaton | 10/9/2011

    " A great book! I think Sharon Draper chose a good theme for this, which is secrets can hurt if you hold them in too long. I read this for a school assignment, and I think I will read it again because I feel as if I rushed through it. "
