I chose this book because in this book it like talks mainly about my life in a way. it took different true scenarios that i faced in my life and put it in the book like i always wanted to and i feel like someone meaning the characters understand what its like to have your father leave the house at the age of 9 or 10 and have to move out the home that you have lived most of your life in from the age of 6 to 9 or 10 and having to going into public schools when you were use to homeschooling with no one in the class but you or dealing with bullies when you didn't know what a bully was until you had to find out from the first day when the bully bullied you. and what its like for someone feel like they can only communicate with her father and not her mother and her side of the family and when your the victim in this mess u feel like your being treated like the suspected
