This book is easily one of my top ten favorites of all time!It was the summer before 5th grade.I told myself I had to read at least one book before school started.I optimistically chose to read the Help... yeah, like that happened.I had about one week left until summer was over, and I still had not read a single book!I finally just picked this book at random.It was one of the best random choices I've ever made!I fell in love with this book from the beginning, and stuck with it till the very end.I barely finished this book the day before school began.That one week was the best week of my whole summer! With every turn of a page, I felt a thrill I'd never experienced before; it was called reading. This one story is what truly started my fondness of books.I owe all my literature joy to this one novel.Thank you "Kira".
