Flamingnet Student Book Reviewer CMy
Twelve-year-old Carmen Cathcart, the oldest sister to
five brothers, is constantly embarrassed by her overly
large family. Several weeks after settling into their new
home, Carmen and her pregnant mother start planning
Carmen's thirteenth birthday celebration. Carmen's birthday
has finally arrived, and Robin (her new best friend) and
Carmen go off to see the movie Cleopatra with her aunt.
When she comes home she starts thinking of how she could
draw Cleopatra when she hears a gasp and glass breaking in
the kitchen (the room her mom just walked into). Tomato,
glittering glass, and dark red blood lay all over the
floor; her mom was going to have the baby! What will happen
next in this suspenseful, edge of your seat novel?
Just for You to Know is a very realistic, touching,
and heartbreaking book that rips your heart to pieces. I
felt a lot of emotion towards the characters while reading
this fantastic book. Just for You to Know is such a
realistic book that it was almost like you were a part of
the Cathcart family and their lives. This book really
teaches you that no matter what happens in life, time is
going to keep ticking with or without you there. I
recommend this book to anyone ages 10 and up who loves real
life fiction stories.
