I received this Review Copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.
This book tells the story of a 13 years old girl called Charline Woodchuck, also known as Charlie, who begins in Snowy Cove High School, where she will have to deal with new students, guys, shop classes, professors, her best friend Stacy, and she will also deal with the perfect girl, Kendra, who outshines the rest of the girls.
But her history gets a little bit complicated when a science book, at the genetics section, confirms her something. Something she had never thought before, something that makes her doubt about her life and her parents. Is she adopted? Now Charlie will have to discover the truth. what else are her parents hiding? Are there any more secrets?
Charlie Woodchuck at first glance may seem like a normal girl, and she is. She's like any other girl of her age. Naive, stubborn, sometimes impulsive but also friendly, funny and sometimes with a lot of courage. I'm sure many readers will feel identified with her, and others will remember the days when they were her same age.
This is a short book, easy to read, sweet and funny, that talks about issues, problems and situations that may occur in the lives of children. Taking place in the 80s, also will show how simple life was some years ago without the technology that exists today. I'm sure many will enjoy reading it, and will laugh at the occurrences of Charlie and her friends.
This is a book kids will enjoy, and that parents and adults will like too.
