it was amazing

As a daydreamer of divorced parents, I really connected with this. It is told in poems and follows a young girl who has issues with daydreaming too much. Th poems are vivid and really capture the essences of the words and what they mean to a kid. It was like reading memories of my own. The ending was heartwarming to top it all off. Overall I really enjoyed this read.
