    I got the book without much expectations but I was really wrong... it is a really interesting book, it really move your heart and it is really inspiring, because you can see there are many people in worse situations than yours, but they keep fighting, so this book moves you to think what am I doing?, why do I give up so easily? And why I am not fighting if I still can? It is an amazing reading... Totally recommended!
  • Parts were bit slow but did pick up

    Where to start? The boston Girl is a good book, but just like any good book they have their ups and downs. As this one, The Boston Girl, has some parts in it that some may find slow moving or boring to them but that's why this book isn't for everyone. Those that enjoy this book will know what I'm saying, it may not be Anita Diamant's best book but it definitely isn't at her worst here with this. This book is more for those looking for an emotional riding type of read.
