This book is about a girl named Kathleen. She met Atticus when she was in first grade. Even though he used a wheelchair, Kathleen didn’t think anything was different about him. He was a person who wanted a friend, and she was a person who would be a friend with him. As they get older, they tend to go in separate directions. But they love each other enough to find time to be together. After a girl at school gets in a fight with her boyfriend, Bobby (who happens to be the most popular boy at school) and they break up. Not a big deal. Not a big deal until Bobby asks Kathleen out. Who will Kathleen choose, trustworthy Atticus or Mister Popular?
I didn’t like this book at first. The characters didn’t seem to make sense to me and some things were out of order. After I got into the story, I really enjoyed it. I think the beginning of a book is harder for authors to write because they have all these ideas floating around inside their heads waiting to come out. Once they finish the first chapter or so, they tend to realize that not everything they planned will fit with the particular story. The more the author writes, the easier it is to swim through the ideas straight to the ones that will work. I think the story was fine and the plot was interesting. I also think the author did a great job with this book. I can’t wait to read more from her. I recommend this book for people 12+.
