My daughter & I really enjoyed reading this book together...we couldn't put it down. I highly recommend it!
This is one of those rare books that isn't "too young" for the reader. I enjoyed reading this book several time, after I got it at about 10 years old. Serious topics are approached in an age appropriate and sometimes even a fun way.
