    " Terrific "it-was-the-summer-I-fell-in-love" novel, with some classism issues and a nice big dose of moral ambiguity. "

    " Book on CD. It was an interesting story, but I didn't relate well to any of the characters. I like how the main character's feelings were not so cut and dry when he found out the truth about his grandfather, but for all her 'deep' talk the love interest seemed kind of shallow to me. "

    " Wonderful book; well written; great story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rachel | 12/2/2013

    " The plot unfurled really slowly and the conflict was kind of hazy and unreal. Overall the story just moved slowly and ended abruptly. "

    " fantastic book! 3rd favorite! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 MMatchak | 11/10/2013

    " Hate, hate, hate this book. Very predictable plot; flat characters; cheesy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amanda (sessionswedding) | 11/6/2013

    " This book was a quick read. I thought it was an interesting look into a unique moral dilemma and the way that the main character dealt with it. I'd recommend it for a quick - but not light - read. Overall 3 stars. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Anne-Marie | 10/23/2013

    " The book was so bad the teacher told us to stop reading it. Can you imagine? Oh well, maybe it would be better seven years later... I'll never know. Life is too short to read it again. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Courtney | 10/4/2013

    " This book is suppose to be about the holocaust, but it was only talked about for about 30 pages. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kat Mc | 9/22/2013

    " So I'm using this one to try to teach some active reading strategies. Uhhh, bad choice. Now I know why most teachers don't bother teaching it to our juniors. What a snooze so far. If you can't hook me in the first 2 chapters, forget it. I'll suffer through though for the sake of the children. Yawn. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Natalie Muster | 9/16/2013

    " The book is pretty good. I felt bad for the kid in the end. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Matthew | 5/28/2013

    " Kind of stupid. Just a 10th grade english assignment from 2009. I wouldn't read it again. Sorry Miss G! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beth | 4/17/2013

    " This book mixes a little about the Holocaust with a teenage love story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 P | 3/26/2013

    " I know my colleagues are sick of this one, but the kids still LOVE it! It does seem dated, but unfortunately, there is always something in the news to which we can relate it. And I'm a fan of anything that gets kids to read. Kerr does that. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 ben holum | 2/26/2013

    " I want to remember as little about this as possible...but I never will be able to erase it completely. What a waste of memory. "

    " I read this in junior high. It's very interesting. I liked it. "
