I have mixed feelings about this book. It was a little difficult to get into at first but it did get better as I went along. I liked the idea of the English teacher assigning the diary assignment which did seem to work for this girl. However the relationship with her kissing her best friend's boyfriend and Lee handling it so passivly I felt was unrealistic. I also had a hard time with her working with her "rapist." Her goal of wanting to get out the house was a realistic goal however she did not want to go alone. She is a very needy young lady. I had hoped there would be a breakthrough with her father when he helped her with the baby. The book just left me wondering where this young lady was headed in her life, probably she will turn out just like her mother.
