Good book

It is a pretty good book although it is slow to start. Also, I found that is more of a really young book, so not recommend for adults.

Gangsta Granny

This is the best book I have ever read for sure, the ending is quite sad it made me cry. It is exiting and funny especially when she blew off without noticing! Ha Ha Ha. I give this 10 out of 10.
