11: Reader Evalution I liked the way the author used the figurative language, to express the way the characters felt about the way something was going on. I liked how Erin felt about how Jilly put her in a situation of choosing out of her or Mar'k's friendship. The author gave discriptions on how she felt. I also like how the author gave the characters their own personalities. Their personalities were realistic and ones that you can find at any school. For example, Jilly's personality, you can find at any school. This novel is the same as my friends' school life. It's the same because Erin and my friend went through the same problem "the friend thing". They both had a friend that was best friends since kindergarten and were never seperated until middleschool. They had totally different schedules. They both had a hard time makng new friends. The differences between them is Erin was made fun of by everyone but my friend didn't have that problem.
