Getting Closer (Getting Out uOur house a lot before he left town for high school These kids I knew personally and they were generallyiet but not in a shy way They were well behaved and polite I can t speak about the author since when I knew her she was a little kid and once I got older I didn t know the kids in the younger grades so much Anyway I guess I read this book out of curiosity because I thought the story can t be that bad
Well It Was And it was and s such a sad story Some people are extremely sensitive
