   Warning for parents!
I didn't read the review. I saw it had five stars, and I was told it was for young readers. Some reviewers have said the last chapter makes this book completely inappropriate for children. It describes the two girls' passionate love for each other and their closeness to each other throughout the night. My daughter was quite upset and it ruined the whole book.
   Not age appropriate
I listened to it with my boys. It's too young for my 8 year old. It's great to be back home, said Cara, "but I still want to be given the information that my parents deserve."
   Not for elementary students
It has had some minor cosmetic damage, but the book is in very good condition, Reichert said. It's a good book, although I'd give my low rating for the contents of the last chapter. It is inappropriate and offensive to the sensibilities of children. He had to ruin what would have been an otherwise good book by forcing an adult situation in a children's novel.
   Beautiful Story!
Bought this book for my sixth-grade classroom. I enjoyed the Korean folk tale influence of the story. A sweet, sad story of tender relationship between children and their grandparents. Letting go of those we love is never easy.
   Heads up if you are giving this to a child without reading it
The book was excellent and I would have given it five stars, but there was an aside in the book that I am not sure whether I would want to promote with children without discussing it with them, Sosa said. This book has a teenage lesbian relationship and I would have liked to have been told about it before I read it. 0 3171201 It is very well written, very witty, and I wish that reviewers had mentioned this before I read it so I am letting you know here. Even if the book is approved, some parents and teachers would want to know whether the child would read it. I want to congratulate Mr. Powell on his new appointment, Mr. Jay said in a statement.
   me and my years old love this book so much.
It has humor, love, friendship, sister, mother and daughter, but its not depressed. recently my son's grandma passed away, and this book was perfect for him to remember her in a beautiful way.
   Gold Newbery Medal seal MISSING on jacket.
I have every Newbery medal from 1922 to present. Retired school teacher, Janet Grubb, said she has been collecting them for years. Please advise Ms. Powell that she is not able to return the book. He added that he is disappointed by the photo, which he called "misleading."
