This book was like one scoop of vanilla ice cream. It was simple, smooth, cold, and delicious. The coolness of the ice cream penetrates more than the simple flavor which only adds to the experience.
This book was very focused. It didn't talk about much other than what Jess was thinking in just the small amount of time the book took place in. However, this wasn't really a problem. The book felt complete. Jess's character was extremely thoughtful and she made the book meaningful. One of my only problems with the book was figuring out how old Jess was supposed to be. She could easily have been 6 or 7 or she could have easily been 14 or 15. Her relationship with Zoe and other schoolmates made her seem young yet her family treated her like she was older. However, that was really the only problem with the book. Each word in the books has a meaning and purpose. There isn't any superfluous description or meaningless characters. This was refreshing because it made the book simple yet sincere. This book is a 4.
