Looking for Cassandra Jane by Carlson is an emotional roller coaster. She tells the life story of Cassandra. In the book Cassandra (Cass) tells about her emotions going from a some what "normal" life of how she grew up and why she had to move to many homes. The story is goes from one exciting thing to another very fast. Cass's life story is something I never want to do or be apart of. All of Cass's struggles and accomplishments make the story go fast and have a roller coaster feeling. Carlson writes about real life conflicts and how it's possible to overcome them. The way she writes is like the Cass is telling her life story in a journal but without the dates of a real journal. In the book Cass will ask herself a question and the question is mainly for the reader to think. The book made me think about my life and how I am living for God. I enjoyed reading this book. It was a fast read and always kept me on my toes. This book touched my heart and made me feel like I was in the book. Carlson did a wonderful and exciting job of writing the book for a young girl.

Melody Carlson got me quick and deep into Cassandra's thoughts and her rough and tumble faith journey of survival. It was hard to pull away from this book, so I didn't. Cassandra's first person account tends toward self-pity at times but in a true-to-life type of way. A bunch of kids make stupid mistakes and learn that doesn't weaken God's power. LOOKING through Cassandra's troubled eyes paints a full landscape of developed characters in an upside down world.

This book hit very close to home for me, and I was able to identify with the character of Cassandra. I too was raised in an abusive alcoholic family, was a misfit in school, and had religion issues. Aside from the personal aspect of my loving this book, the book itself is wonderfully written and Melody Carlson (the Author) did an excellent job of 'becomming' Cassandra. You will definetly miss Cassandra when you are finished reading the book. She is the kind of character that becomes so real and personal, that she stays with you for a long time. Like an old friend!

This was not her typical type of book. usually there is not sex or violence but that was not the case in this one. It was actually a good story but I struggled to get thru it.

Wow, this book is great! you can feel this girls joy, hope, and pain. When I picked it up I thought it would be really churchy and dull. But it had the perefect combination. Non-Christain and Christain peolpe should read it because they will love it!
