|Saving Sailor from death row was a huge moment in the life of Angelina Julia – who much prefers being called A.J.|
|The summer that A.J. turns 10 is the best summer in her whole life. She absolutely knows she will remember it that way always. A.J. is from a typical Italian-American family and clearly details how life was so much different then than it is now.
Personally, This book took way too long to read. I’m not sure if it was a mood or what but I just could not get into it. I’m generally a plot reader and while the storyline is good – there is no plot.
I really enjoyed A.J.’s thoughts on God. He’s a huge part of her life and makes it clear to everyone where they stand. She’s also very honest – wondering, like a 10 year old does – what exactly she is to repent for and when it’s not really a sin.

|I’m not really sure what age group this book is good for because I just couldn’t get into it. It reads as if you’re reading a ten year old’s diary but the end makes you think she wrote it as a late teen. Possibly, I’d have read it in my early teens, but I know my boys would never read it. It really isn’t a bad book, it was well written and very realistic, I just couldn’t get ‘into it.’
