So long ago! Apr 4, 2008
I remember reading this book when I was about 9 or 10 years old for a school assignment.Im now 25 yers old and as far as I can remember this was a good yet touching book!
Memories Jul 14, 2007
I read this book about 7 years ago while in the fourth grade, I have always reguarded the book as one of the few books assigned by school I have truly despised. To this day I can remember the anger I felt towards the book. I was not angry to have to read it but at the way it was written, I believe it to be something that should not be read until children are much older than 10, possilbly older that even 15.
Good Book May 19, 2007
This book was really good I read this book for one my graduate class and it was really touching and life lesson as well.
Forever Friends Nov 30, 2006
I liked this book. It is a sad story about how Jamie died because of bee stings. I would think that it was my fault because I should have tried to stop him from putting the stick down that hole. But why would someone put a stick down a hole? That is dumb. But I would recommend this book to a pair of friends. They should read the book together because they should remember to stay friends forever.
Never Forget Your Best Friends Nov 30, 2006
I give this book five stars. It was a great book, and it also made me sad. I think he will make new friends, but he'll never forget Jamie. Jamie was his best friend. I recommend this book to you if have alot of feelings for your friends.
