It’s hard to be a thirteen-year old girl. But it’s even harder when your father is a drunk; Samantha is a teenaged girl with a fun personality and a younger brother. She has never told any one her secret before, she went to the library and found she didn’t have any one to talk to about her problem so she started to write secret notes to some quit girl that sits in the corner of the library next to the window, but Samantha later realizes that she is not talking to the quit girl in the corner, but some teenage stranger that works at the library. Samantha finds out that her dad is some what dangerous when her brother takes and unexpected trip to the emergency room.
The main character is Samantha and she is a carful and sweet, brave girl with a fun personality she can’t stand her dad when he is drunk which is most of the time.
What I liked most about the book is probably the way that the author wrote the book I felt like I was there first hand, and it seem as if it is a biography of the person because it tells of her problems and the way she handled them.
I would recommend this book to most people that enjoy fun and at times sad and novels with the author writing in first hand.
Don’t miss the other two books in the series perfect and bounce. enjoy! ☺. Savannah Y
