This novel made me appreciate my family. I am so lucky to have two brothers that love me and if I were in trouble I know they would help. Even though they don't always act like they love me I know they do .I think if Mel had a brother or sister would have been easier for her because they could help on each other when Cecily got taken away. I have never been in a situation that Mel has and I want to keep it that way.
I liked how the author use strong describing word when describing how Mel felt. I think the book would have been better if the author wrote it in Mel's point of view or if it was written like Mel's journal because i would have liked to hear Mel's feelings on what was going on from her point of view.
Overall I would rate this book an 8 because I think would had more emotion to it if it was written in Mel's eyes.
