Book Review

This book takes place on Salt Marsh Lane. Chirp (Naomi) Jennings goes to the salt marsh to feed the fish and look at birds every day. Next to the Jennings house is the Morralls. There are three boys, Joshua, Mike, and Joey. Joey is in chirps grade six class, they don't really know each other but become friends. I liked this book because I could relate a little bit about a family member getting hurt or being sick and not being able to do what they love.

Strengths and Weaknesses

Some strengths are when Chirp goes to the salt marsh with her mom, or when they go hiking together before she hurt her leg and cant dance. Chirp is mad at herself because she hates her life because it isn't perfect but no ones life is. It was really sad when Chirps mom Hannah got diagnosed with MS ( multiple sclerosis). MS is a chronic disease that attacks the central nervous system... Weakness

Who i would recommend this book to

I would recommend this book to someone who likes nature, family events, or dance

The Driving Question = What Makes This Book Great?

What makes this book great is near the middle of the book there is a twist which is sad but twists aren't always good. At the end if you read this book you will feel a lot of emotion and I am not telling you what it is so you have to read it to fing out.. Sorry.
