It's a funny, sad,and happy book. It 's story line is very good. It shows that if you work hard enough to do something it is ealily possible. It is a very good book for about all ages. I recomend kids reading it because it shw that you have courage you can do a lot.

This book is very poorly written.
It shows how if someone sets his or her mind to something everything will happen and turn out ok and you can go to happy land and live as an angel with all you want.
Yeah Right.
Fact of the matter is, that doesn't always happen.
