Fun! Fun! Fun! I really like the fact that the viewpoint was a paper that needed to be written by a teenager full of angst. We have all wanted to write "take that Mrs. Smith!" to one of our English teachers! Although Jade is not the bad girl you are led to believe, she is full of spunk. The "adopted" part seemed to be thrown in as filler and wasn't fully developed so it seems a bit out of place. That in itself could become a couple of chapters in this novella. I give it four stars (hopefully that comes out right - I can't seem to get rid of the 5th star in the rating element)

In some ways the story follows the lines of a typical older teen/young adult tale. However, what set this novella apart for me was the way it was written. I loved the fact that the story was written as a writing assignment on love and hate that the main character had to turn in to a teacher. It added an element of humor and made the novella feel like the best version of the story. Although Jade takes several hits one after another, her ability to figure it out in the end was great. Even though read hurt Jade, I can definitely see why he did. In his shoes, I would have done the same thing he did at that time and in that situation. The final paragraph of the story and the conclusion about love and hate made so much sense to me as well.
