8 This book is a love story.
9 The title goes well with the story. The title refer to Imogen who’s almost fifteen.
My opion of the book.
9 I like this part of the book because it is pretty that Imo understand that Adam Derman is to old.
a) I find this book common and dull. Because there wasn’t any tension. I knew it was a real girl book. But I didn’t know that a girl book is so dull. The story isn’t bad, but I dont’t like these strories. I like a story that is thrilling and true of life. The story is good to understand, but in the begin I didn’t know what the main point was. Later I understood.
b) This story is a must for a girl who like goody - goody stories. But for boys and girls who love thrilling stories it isn’t a must.
c) I give this story a 6. The story wasn’t bad but I don’t like it.
