I thought this was an excellent and very well written . It's a story about a thirteen-year-old girl called Deenie who her mother thinks should be a model. Deenie is not very keen on the idea but deals with it. When the doctors find out she has a back problem called scoliosis her mother's dreams of Deenie being a model are crushed and Deenie is forced to wear a brace which she describes as being like a cage. Strong Deenie manages to get through life though at times she thinks that she is going crazy.

This book was very good. It illustrated the downsides of having scoliosis and also how Deenie learned that you just have to live with what your given. You can't choose everything in life and if something happens, it just happens. You can't always help it.

I have it I can give it to you.

I read this book because I was intrigued by the theme and concept of this story just by reading the back. This book was about a girl named Deenie, her family wanted her to become a model, but shes never been over the top excited about being one. In this story Deenie develops scoliosis, this book is mostly about Deenie and her family coping and adjusting to such a big change. I thought this book was well written and I like the fact that it is about something unique, not about the common things such as friendship and puppy dogs.
