    " This book had such potential. A mom flees and abusive husband and starts a new life in a small town. The 11-year-old has a mixed race friend. So many possibilities. I kept waiting for the profound life lessons, but they never came. Easy read, but still not worth the time. Sad. "

    " This book wasn't one of my best reads of the yr so far. I felt like it was dragging in several parts, and the end was predictable. I thought somewhere I saw a sequel. May try it, but if I'm not impressed by the 5th chapters, then I will put it down. "

    " I really liked that it was a 11 year old's perspective in this book. I think that sometimes we are like Roz and want something so much that we trust others or what others are saying even if we know that we shouldn't. I really enjoyed this story- It was an excellent read. "
