Aimed at children aged 13+, this is the story that deals with friendship, love and families through a series of poems, diary entries, emails, recipes and drawings. Rebecca is fourteen, and finding out that life is becoming increasingly complicated. Having to live with a gross brother, and the world's ugliest dog is no picnic.
The cover is kind of plain, not too eye-catching but not terrible. Just meh.
Meh. This was more disappointing than anything.
About halfway in, I was starting to wonder if this story was going to take a darker turn, but instead it just went to a normal drama teenage plot point. It was disappointing.
I was mostly left at the end of the book wondering what the point was—I didn’t really get anything out of it. It was pretty much boring life stuff that Amber was journaling about, with useless recipes and poems thrown in, nothing important. No big surprise or twist thrown in.
Very meh. Thankfully it was at least short and didn’t take much time.
