I really enjoyed reading this book. Once I started reading, I didn't put it down. I finished it really quickly and was disappointed when it ended because I had such a good time reading it. I strongly recommend this book to other readers because it's not just your average ordinary book, it's something different.

A good story about a middle school girl trying to fit in to her life at home and at school.

This book is so good! I finished in one afternoon. I like how Sonia forgives her friends and family as they do things to her. Like her father; when he disappears and they find him she forgives him. This book has become one of my #1 favorite books.

Finally, at dinner, while I’m trying to figure out why the tofu is so purple, Mom says, “Kids--”

And Dad says, “Wait, I’ll--”

And Mom says, “You should--”

And Natasha says, “Ha!” because she’s five years younger than I am and doesn’t know what to do with herself half the time.

And Dad says, “I have some bad news,” which explains why Mom’s acting strange and probably why the tofu’s so purple. His face looks red and a little puffy, like he’s going to cry. I’ve actually never seen my father cry. Two years ago my uncle died, Dad’s brother, and Dad didn’t cry at the funeral. Not that he wasn’t sad, because he looked sadder than I’ve ever seen him.

“I lost my job. I was fired,” he says. His eyes are wide.
