Student book reviews

When she was good by Norma Fox Mazer

by Gabby

The main character Em just grabbed my attention by the first page and I couldn’t help but keep reading. She sounded like a person who was really depressed.

Em’s father would come home drunk and beat all three Pamela, Em, and their mother. When their mother dies, Em and Pamela are left destroyed. Pamela also dies at a young age. Now all thats left is Em. She has nobody but herself.

Will Em give up on herself or will she stand up high and keep it going? Read the book to find out…(Scholastic, 2000)
