I really enjoyed this book. I had to do a ten page book report on it with my two friends and i am in the sixth grade. I really think that book was not too bad to read considering that it was for school.

I felt so much for Fred while I was reading this book. It touched my heart in many different ways. One person can change the world, and Fred is proof of that. May his soul rest in peace.
