Powerful Heroine and Strong Friendships!!
This was the second book in this trilogy. Suzie is now a second year student and knows her way around. She is stronger and more confident. She has great tests of her courage coming soon, but her friends support her and prepare her for what she will have to face.
It's difficult to pick just one favorite; but that would have to be Suzie herself. She is strong and brave, filled with compassion and caring for others. I see her growing in each book, and she is someone I would be proud to call a friend. You can trust her. She has your back whenever you need her!
I loved the accent the narrator used for Frank. He was good with all, but that one particularly drew me in.
The moving portions of the story for me were her relationships with her friends and certain teachers. Strong bonds develop among all of them. Friendship is so important throughout the storyline.
Christopher Mannino is a wonderful storyteller. I hope he continues writing these tales for us all to enjoy! This has been and continues to be a delightful experience!
