The struggle's in life March 24, 2011
This textbook was excellent. It's a great book about a young girl having to grow into womanhood very young. The story will grab your attention and it won't let it go until it's all over, please read this book carefully. And please do not judge anyone because some of those bad people's mistakes. I liked the book because it was very detailed and descriptive.
