Perhaps one of Judy Blume's best works. For those that wish to learn of death, and the sorrow that accompanies it, I recommend this book. To those who want a realistically driven story with characters as sympathetic and life like as its author I also recommend this book. I personally have lost several family members, and despite the years that have passed since those losses I feel that this story of a young girl from California has somehow given me an iota of closure. Thank you Judy Blume, for giving us a writing that comes directly from the heart.

This was one of the best books I've read and towards the end it really had me hooked on and I finished it in 2 days! I don't like reading at all but this book was amazing!
