Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tear Jerker So i read this back in elementary school and i have been trying to find it ever since. This was the first book where i cried while reading it. I must say this is an excellent book and just because the age category is meant for 10-12 i think this book can be read by anyone. The length of the book isnt long but thats what makes it sweet. I really recommend reading this book.
