the real truth (Wednesday, December 24, 2008)

The book was so good. Some people might be able to relate to it where I'm from. I loved it. It was a little sad but I think that's what makes a good book--if it makes you want to cry and has things that you can relate to. If you like all of Wahida Clark's books then you are going to love this one. And this was my first time reading one of Kiki Swinson's books and I loved it. I have to pick up some more of her books.
