When Jamie saw him throw the baby, saw Van throw the little baby, saw Van throw his little sister Nin, then they moved.

So begins one of the most compelling novels for young readers published in recent memory. It is a story of survival—how nine-year-old Jamie, his mother, and his baby sister Nin leave an abusive situation, move to a small trailer in the woods, and slowly learn how to trust the people around them—and each other.

    " The story is about a father throwing his baby out of a crib in the middle of the night and the family moves away from the father. This is basically the whole story. The story was very descriptive which gave me a good sense of what the surroundings look like but, not enough going on for the plot of the story. This story was a very quick read but it very confusing. There was no real climax to this story, and if there was it was right at the end. Nothing really exciting took place which was a bummer. Honestly the best party of the book was when I finished. The second best part of the book was that it was only 126 pages. The high point was when the Nin the baby was thrown out of the crib by her father and nothing really happened in the story after this event that was worth writing about. This book definitely could be a decent story for younger children who just read for practice. If you are someone who likes to read books, you would probably hate this book because this book has nothing really to offer for excitement, or the ability to get lost in the plot of the story. The one thing the author did a really good job at was being super descriptive about the surroundings mentioned in the book. In the end I would never recommend this book to any of my friends or family as a good and interesting book to read. "

    " This book was eerie, almost screwed up, the whole situation, and i honestly didn't find any of the characters particularly likable, either... "

    " What Jamie Saw by Carolyn Coman is a really good book. This book is about child abuse. After Van (Jamie's dad) threw his infant daughter across the room, Jamie, his mom, and his sister Nin decided to move. They had to find a home and adjust to their new life. As I was reading this book, It filled me with suspense. When Van threw Nin, I wanted to know what would come next. What would happen to Nin? Would she be okay? I constantly wanted to keep reading more and more. This book showed me what child abuse is like and how hard it can be to have to go through it. This book was very detailed and descriptive, which really helped to understand the story better. Although this book was sad at first, it got a lot happier throughout the book, to know that Nin was safe and that they were all okay. Overall this was a great book and i would recommend it to anyone, especially people who want to know more about child abuse. "
