Dear Mel,

Okay, it's not a dream job. The kid is alright, but her mom treats me like a personal slave/shopper/chef. And she's vile to the pet iguana who is now my only friend -- sad or what? Maybe I'll run off to San Francisco -- maybe my next postcard will be from there! Wish me luck!

          i think that this book is a really good example of the ups and downs of a relationship. But in the end if you keep working hard and trying, you can acomplish whatever you want. I also like the way that the author used certain words to show how the main character felt. (i would only recommend grade 5 and up, because of swears and other stuff.
