  1. I do think this is a good choice for middle grade readers because we can see what happens in some schools and what happens outside out the little bubble of Geneseo. I liked reading this book because I got informed about what happens when you have an addiction and why you have it.

  2. I want to be someone who is caring and kind and keeps her room clean and is nice to her sister.

  3. I want to be someone who is loved and someone who is cared for and I want to be a baker and own my own bakery.

  4. I think that this book is a good book for Middle schools readers because It teaches us that even though we make mistakes in life you can always fix them or even yourself.

  5. i believe that this very great book for middle schoolers but not good for elememtary. i this is a good read for middle schoolers because it teaches you a little about life, and its a very intersting read!

  6. I think that this book is a really good book for middle scholars but not for elementary because it talks about drinking a little bit. This book is really fun and it teaches you a lot of stuff

  7. I want to be someone who is kind someone who is good with kids and animals ,and someone who stands up for the weak

  8. I think this is a good choice for middle grade readers. I think this because it has a good lesson. It teaches you that even if you are on the wrong track, you can still change to be who you want to be. Also, the bad things Wren does with Meadow give us an idea of what not to do in our life. An example of one of the bad things they do is shoplifting. That is why I think this book is a good choice for middle grade readers.

  9. I do think that this was a good book for middle schoolers. We might have the temptation to do drugs and this book let us see the consequences of doing them. This book also makes you grateful for all the things you have. Running water, electricity, phones, and family.

  10. Yes i do think it is a good choice for middle schoolers because it has some information about some things

  11. I want to be someone who succeeds in life and gets a job and a nice home when I grow up. But for right now, I just want to be a straight A+ student, and get opportunities to try new things while I can.
