i think that this book is a really good example of the ups and downs of a relationship. But in the end if you keep working hard and trying, you can acomplish whatever you want. I also like the way that the author used certain words to show how the main character felt.
(i would only recommend grade 5 and up, because of swears and other stuff.
I loved this book and thought that it was a great example of how people treat exotic animals and how the animals respond to being treated that way. I also thought that the whole story was beautiful, sad, and very special. I hope that others will enjoy it as much as i did.
