11: Recommendation: I think the novel was a great book,especially for young middle school and high school girls.This novel is filled with drama.I think the idea about Kate wanting to live a normal life is great.I don't like how later on in the book it describes people in different groups by the popularity and cloths they wear.I don't agree with it because in reality,it's not that way.But I do love this book and would recommend young readers to read it.
