This book was a real tear jerker, we read it in sixth grade with my social studies teacher (not for a social studies class though, obviously), and I wasn't expecting it to be good. But from the minute that I opened that book I could hardly put it down to go to my next class, it's about a girl whose Uncle is mentally handicapped, and it's her story of how life is. She can't bring home any friends without him scaring them off, and she can't live a normal life because of him; but she loves him undoubtedly. If reading this book, be ready to cry, and to laugh, because the times they have together is what caught me onto this book.
