Becoming an adult is never easy but these two girls make the best of it and learn that friendship is important.

This book touched me when I read it because these 2 girls went through an experience no woman should have to go through.

This work provided a fresh perspective on becoming an adult and finding out how to make your way in the world. The use of the alternating journal entries to tell the story is effective as we get two points of view on an event. The two main characters learn that they can share their lives and find strength in others. A quick read. Recommended.

Harrowing, heart breaking, heart warming. Characters that will stay with you, I reckon. It's also very good to see more diverse characters - there aren't many books about girls with disabilities around, and this one's a great addition to the list.
