    " Such a cute, short book about the friendship and relationship between a 12 year old boy and girl. the girl's Granny Torrelli helps them through their struggles as they grow up as life long pals! Granny is a spunky, kind character that helps these two kids with her love and Italian cooking! A cute book every boy/girl friendship should read! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katie | 2/10/2014

    " Sharon Creech has done it again with her fantastic writing! She chooses to write things clearly original and does what not a lot of writers do: she wrote it well. She writes and she doesn't just make you feel like you're in the book, she makes you feel something...something words can't explain. She doesn't just make you feel bad when something bad happens, she makes you feel...like I said, words can't explain it. You feel real emotion. This book just puts you in somebody else's shoes that no one has really bothered to wear. I strongly recommend this book for anybody searching for the book you'll be talking about for years (I mean that in a good way). "

    " Read in third grade. Hated it. Lack of plot and exciting characters. What was even the point?! If I could tell this as a 9 year old, imagine how I would think of it now. I don't think there's anything left to write. "

    " I'd read this book in probably fourth grade and loved it. I reread it today and decided that it was cute and easy to relate with, but the writing style was very repetitive and frankly, got annoying. For a kid a couple years younger than me, I'd recommend this book. To anyone else, probably not. "

    " I'm a huge fan of Sharon Creech, but this one didn't do it for me. It has that Sharon Creech style - short sentneces with lots of voice (very poetic), but it doesn't have the strength of Heartbeat or Love That Dog. "
