    8. This book was good not great but good I felt this was a time wasting book A book that you read when you have nothing else to read honestly But like all good books it had a message.The book foreshadowed the change affect of Alyssa s life with beginning with one event which created another one, a domino affect For example in the text it states She knew that voice and what it meant very well Whenever she heard it, there was a problem on its way 36 And she was right her dad left home, her mother got [...]

    10. The book wasn t exactly fun to read I m guessing the author based it on reality I prefer reading a book where everything ends well In this case, nothing went as the main character had hoped This is a short story about a girl who has family problems, but fights hard to stay strong During the book, I was really hoping something good might happen, but it all ended with her dreams being turned down Somehow, the story didn t really make a lot of sense Still, it was very detailed and it had interestin [...]

    11. This book is one of those girly books It wasn t really good or bad, but it definetly isn t one of those books that stays in your heart and you just love it and want to read it again and again This book is about a preteen girl named Alyssa that changed her name to Blister and her life and she deals with her struggles and problems I would only recommend this book to people that love girly books It you aren t one of those people I suggest you stay away from this book because you will probably get b [...]

    12. When her baby sister is stillborn, ten year old Alyssa s family falls apart She changes her name to Blister, changes schools, moves to an apartment with her depressed mother while her father gets his own place, and tries to believe her grandmother, who tells her she is elastic and can handle it all.

    13. Pretty decent coming of age book, about a girl essentially growing beyond her innocence of childhood, and discovering that life is not as perfect as she believed Handled in a way that is organic, for the most part I really like that the main character is unabashedly flawed, as all ten year old girls are, and that the issue of depression is tackled without hesitation.

    14. Blister is an only child in her family Her parents were going to have a baby, but it was born dead Her family got destroyed Alyssa Blister was only taken care of her grandma, Daisy G I recommend this book for people that like read short stories of a character s life.

    15. It was an interesting book about a girl named Blister Blister is very brave, and she always looked on the bright side The reader follows Blister as she takes control of her own life and figures out where she belongs in the world

    16. This book wasn t as good as I thought it would be It was sort like, too young for me, because it was kind of like the whole time she was going on and on about how many problems she has, but not doing anything to change them I don t know, it just wasn t my type.

    17. This book was very well written It is about a fifth grade girl who experiences family tragedies and decides to reinvent herself when she begins attending a new school She learns some life lessons along the way.

    18. This is such a lovely coming of age tale that is easy and quick to read I can t help but root for the remarkable and quirky character, Blister, and can t wait for her to bounce back and gain control over her life Good, interesting read

    19. This is a book for teens or tweens, the group I teach It was definitely readable as a grown up as well I enjoy Susan Shreve and it reminded me a bit of Judy Blume.

    20. Well this was one of the most depressing books of my childhood I admired the lead for her tenacity but her father was just so Ugh what an entitled sex addicted asshole.

    21. This book was humorous, glamorous, absolutely worth reading.I can completely compare to some of this girls situations Absolutely worth a high rating.

    22. 5 stars They call her Blister She moved to a new school, and went through some tough things and family problems Here grandmother calls her elastic and thinks she can handle it all It was good.

    23. This is a cute book for elementary middle school girls It would especially be appropriate for a middle schooler whose parents are going through divorce.

    24. i loved the way blister makes it up daisy g is a character i loved personally because of her theories and guidance to blister
