I continued reading this book because I was determined to finish it.What is termed 'miracles' is not what I call miracles though -- it's just sort of like natural abilities? Something she thought of, and focused on and it happened.
As for the punishments and the cruelties listed in the story -- I wrote a bunch of other stuff, about how I felt about the events in the story and I deleted it. I'll just go along with what Shiloh wrote and say it was horrible. Yes, there were some triggers, mostly in how that kind of behavior and insanity, even if supposedly it is in a story and not real, actually happens. And people condone it, or are too afraid to say anything about it. At least the bully in this story isn't also gifted with charisma, and able to say lies and warp others to think it is truth.
I think that if I'd seen the movie, I'd be kinder to the story. However ... on to the next, and last, review page!
