    I liked the poems a lot. Also, when I read about the bellas calling Mr tomonski a murderer and being mean I got mad at them. I think it is a good thing if the author can make you mad or angry or likeable towards a character.

    An easy, quick and entertaining read where I was drawn into the main character but the ending came out of nowhere and was not the least bit satisfying! The author builds interest in the story line easily but the ending is abrupt and lackluster.

    {Teenager daughters review} I loved this book. It is my favorite book even though its a bit smaller than the usual books I read. You go through the whole book with a narrator that is so young it is more from a neutral party. Thought the ending was sad, it shows how unproven, bias statements can affect a person in ways that you figure are just words instead of a knife in the back. The end also shows how wrong the saying "sticks and stones can break my bones, but words can't hurt me" really is. An amazing, a little tragic, meaningful, and enjoyful read.

    The book is very different than any book I have ever read. It is about a girl who has three sisters when she is born and her dad really wants a son. All of the children's names have to start with an A. So her name is Amen. She was the fifth one born after her older sister died after 9 days of living. Her and her sisters are all scared of their neighbor Mr. Tominski, a mysterious man that saved their father from death. Mr. Tominski is the keeper of the doves behind an old church. There are some sad parts. But I would still recommend this book any day.
