it is brilliantly written. Emotional story. An adult would relate to this story.

I thought this book was excellent. The writing was beautiful, the storyline intriguing and touching. It has a poetic quality that won't be to everyone's taste...and a slow pace compared to most modern stories. I know it is considered Young Adult or maybe even Children's literature - but as an adult I found it wonderful and put it at the top of my list of recent good reads.

This was a great book :) touching :)

If you are in upper elementary or jr. high this is a book you should read.

At some point in our lives we all need help to fly above whatever is keeping us grounded.

This book was sort of confusing. The novel was written fine, but the storyline was messed up. I didn't get it.
