Rated 3 out of 5 by from Easy read This was a very short and easy read. Someone can easily finish it in a day (or even a few hours). This is the story of someone who is in touch with the land, loses that closeness and then finds it again. It is the story of a young girl who has to overcome so much tragedy. In the midst of all this tragedy she finds things that are invaluable to her and finding herself again. This story is suitable for people of all ages. It is short enough and relative enough to young people, but just as enjoyable to someone older. It is a touching story that teaches everyone that you can always find good even in the worst events.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Haunting and Beautiful When I was about 12, I was looking through the selection of the school's book fair. I picked up this little green book, and seeing how it happened to be the same price as the amount of money I had, I decided to buy it. I read the book that night, and I cried the entire time. This may be a very short book, but it means so much to me. I read it when my parents were in the middle of their divorce. In a way the story reflected the way I felt. I was losing my family, while she literally lost them. The feeling of abandonment, of utter loss, of loneliness. I was reading my own feelings. The book is dark, yet meaningful. And now, at 18, I can say that the book still has that same effect on me. A must read, and I encourage any young adult facing hardship to purchase this book, because it is very inspirational.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Read it is you Wish This book is an extremely short read that I only read because a friend and I decided to swap books in class one day. Since it is so short, it has a simple plot and the characters aren't very diverse but it has a very clear moral and message that it sends to the readers. I think this is worth the short read but not really worth buying. It is the kind of book I would only read once.
