She is an amazing character- very strong and her devotion to her brother is admirable.

I actually typed down my complaints as I read the first half, which went like this: Aug 13, Sara Grochowski rated it it was amazing Shelves: It was a tear-jerker. Just because a girl likes to read doesn’t mean she can’t occasionally outshoot the boys. Anyone feel the same way as me 3.

So, someone would find the snake, freak out and who knows what else? The first two goals she pulls off pretty well; the third gets a bit complicated. What really stood out to me was Annika’s pure determination and belief that she could pull this off. It started out as: My Double Life http: You can’t see it on this picture, but the cover actually has sparkles on it.

Annika tries to make her sick brother’s dream come true. Standing ovation amongst thunderous claps.

This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. It was very entertaining and although this would never ever happen in real life, like most YA novel plots don’t, and although it’s way OTT, I continued reading it because it was funny and the characters are very likable!
