There are outlaws trying to kill everyone they come across, and a rancher trying to start a war with Chet by running his herd on Chet's land. Fans of the book liked that the book is not just simply a romance novel masquerading as a western novel.

First, the book is a quick read. Life is busy. Especially for high school students with their many extracurricular activities, volunteer duties, and of course homework. This book will take just a few hours to read and anyone would be able to fit it in a crazy
Although the book 's pacing starts out a bit slow, it quickly gains speed when the conflict is introduced. The wording used in the book is easy to comprehend yet it never seems to be over simplified. The plot is engaging enough to keep the reader’s attention but also manages to be easy to follow. I found that even though the book dragged in portions it was still an overall satisfactory read. I greatly enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys books of the YA
This setting affects the characters because if it weren’t a small town, she never would have been able to leave the kids and would not have been reunited with her mother. I infer this because the book reads, “I can’t just leave. I’m babysitting….‘I found someone, Mrs. Cobb three doors down. She’s coming right over.’” The story kept me involved because everything keeps going wrong, and it makes me want to read to see what happens next.
The book narrates Matt’s life, from his birth to his teens. Throughout his life, he interacts with many characters. Him and these characters are the source of the many twists and turns Farmer provides. Matt and many characters (especially Tom), build up an abundance of suspense and action in the story. Maria, an important character in the story is the major source of the suspense between Tom and Matt.
It 's a jaw-dropping book that will leave you wanting more as the author Laurie writes in a crisp and clear way describing the young girl Melinda’s horrific story and how it unfolds.

This novel was exceptionally peculiar, which made the book nearly impossible to predict and held my attention until the very end. Matthew Quick was able to write a story I could easily relate to because of my passion towards basketball and common hardships teenagers endure. Moreover, frequent scenarios within the novel showed realistic struggles within violence that are very relatable and realistic in the 21st century. For instance, the internal struggles of high schoolers such as jealousy and trying to fit in. On top of this, it was astounding to see all three dynamic characters, Russ, Erin, and Finley develop throughout the story, as all three grew their friendship and learned from one another leaving you breathless.
The book tells a story of the main character Greg Huffley and his experiences in middle school and all the challenges he went though. In my opinion the author wrote the book because he wanted to give us and idea of what it mostly is like to be in middle school. I also think Jeff Kinney wrote the book for our entrainment
This book taught me many lessons and helped me look at the world differently, from looking at people and realizing that they are just a person, like me. We may go through the same conflicts and not even realize it. It also teaches me that people have more dimensions, unlike paper, we are more complicated and elaborate.
