This book was very slow in the beginning, but I got into it as I went along. Everyone should give this book a chance. It’s not totally boring like a few other people have portreyed.

This book was one of the best books i have read. I have to contradict the other comments where they say it was boring. I thought it was an interesting book from the beginning. But we all have different reviews. Once you read the book, the movie doesn’t even come close to compare.

This book was a great lesson teaching book. At first I was not really interested in the book but it got great reviews! Then when I actually started reading it, it grabbed me! It was a great book for a teen of a family where eithr the parents are divorced/split up, where they do not know wher the mother/father is, or if one of the parents has passed away. Even so I would reccomend the book to anyone who would like to read a good family revovled book.

Okay. Sort of long and tedious at times, and I felt it hard to feel for the characters, but an okay book overall. Takes place on a bee farm in the 1950's and tells the story of a white 15-year-old girl and how she rooms with four black women.
