stories I d been told and so I had a personal connection to the story The story itself was very well done, though the ending was a bit confusing and hasty The characters were very realistic so I came to really care for them and really enjoy the book overall. 4.5 stars This powerful novel caught my eye when I took my son to a preschool library class it was calling to me from the library display
