    Eloise Greenfield is one of my favorite author so would have to rate this book a five This book is what happens to most kids at a young age when they parents divorced And they have to choose who to live with it s very complicated and sometimes drives kids crazy In this book the son commits suicide so please read this book and don t make same mistake as the boy.

    Genny s brother Larry is coming home from the army and she hopes he can fix their family Mom and Dad have been fighting and Genny doesn t know how muchtheir family can handle This is a good book for a family that is having issues at home or is separating.

    This book talked about family and family issues This would be a great book for students to read, because its a transitional chapter book, but its also a great book that touches on taboo family issues Overal this was a great read for 3rd 5th graders to read.
