Rating: 4

My rating for this book is a 4 because the book is focused and I believe the poem format does bring it down in some spots at times.


This book is about two characters who have had a lot of problems in their lives. Their names are Hannah and Cal. They both live together after Cal moved in because of family problems. They both are cousins and Cal pulls pranks on Hannah that she doesn't like. Her parents slowly start drifting apart after Cal moving in. She decides to bring the family back together and to include Cal in that family too.


My recommendation for this book is anyone who wants to read books about more realistic problems and positive outcome books. I would recommend the interest level of this book to about 13-18 year olds. I would recommend the reading level of this book to about 8-14 year olds because of the perspectives being switched constantly throughout the book. Overall, I would only recommend this book to a variety of different readers.
