Book Review
The book Begging for Change written by Sharon G. Flake is very mind boggling and interesting. It is written in 1st person and it is realistic fiction. Raspberry Hill, the main character has a tough life to live. She has to take care of herself, her mother, and boyfriend. I think that the fighting and stealing would be the only flaw or weakness in this book. This book is phenomenal for 7th and 8th grade girls.
