and very informative I don know which one So What If I Bleed to choose next This was an exceptionally GREAT diary Ihoroughly enjoyed it uite often I find The Lost Frost Girl thathese girls are oo goody goody or make maybe wo mistakes The Physics of Basketball total I still lovehem as characters but I find Princess Of Desire them hardero relate Missing Dixie to Inhis story Noreen is actually a bully a couple of imes and finds it hard o apologize and in fact puts it off I found her The Authentics to be a much realistic character inhat respect as she has personal problems hat she manages o work out and as a result of he polio she actually becomes a better person and friend That being said I also found his diary particularly informative I learned much about polio and Not Just Jane:
