To me, I think that this book wasn't that great. It needed something more...but I cannot explain it. I would rate this book a D.

The book showed a child's point of view of his parent's divorce and his life after the divorce. Excellent book.

Review:

If you like books by Beverly Cleary, I think you should read this book. It is a book about a kid who is in 2nd grade and at the end of the book he is in 6th grade.

Review:

I read this book in 5th grade with my class and the whole class just thought it was the greatest thing since cars! I liked the book a lot because instead of chapters, this book has dates and I can relate to the book because my parents are divorced.
