This book can really make you think a different way about the society because you can see how some people are living and after you have read this book it makes you thankful for all that you have and the nice people in your life. I really liked this book because it makes a really deep impression because she is fighting for her dreams in the darkest days their people are trying to bring her down and destroy her dreams. That’s the reason till why I would recommend this book to older teenagers and adults. The language in this book can be a bit strange because the characters are using many slang words so sometime you have to stop and think about that they really mean.
