My 9th-graders will probably like this book, especially the girls. It dealt with emotions and teen-aged-angst (even mentioning the word) well. As a mature reader, I thought the pace was a bit slow. Would definitely recommend for adolescents, which is whom it was written for, after all!
First of all this book should never of been listed as 4 to 8 yrs of age. It is more for teens. The subject is a hard one...teen suicide, but an important one to read about. This is gently handle and well written. I am well past teen years and found this interesting. It is the story about a Aimee who is found dead, her best friend is accused of helping her commit suicide. Opens your eyes to a problem that is rampent in this society. A good read for teens to use to learn about this subject.
