ENJOY THIS REVIEW!!!!! This book helped me remember that I am not alone in feeling bullied,so I would cool down right away and pretty much forget about it. This will probably be a book that I will cherish for my kids someday. That is if I will have any. I would much rather have dogs. I am going to be a vet someday,so I will probably just show it to my dogs. Not like they would need it anyways or maybe the do........ O.K. way way way to much into my personal future life. Enjoy the book if you get it. I am an 11 year old by the name of Karissa Augustine making this report. BYE!!!!
