This was really good book. one of Ann's best. it's all about a girl called Danielle. she has leukemia and when she starts feeling better, her parents give her lots of liberty. then Danielle starts pushing her luck, seeing how far everyone can stretch; basically going overboard. It's time for the BSC to take over! the BSC talks to Danielle's parents but they ignore the warning. then finally, an actual car accident happens while Jessi is babysitting. in the car, Danielle is driving. there is Becca, Vanessa and Charlotte in the car. they have an accident and then finally Danielle's parents understand her problem. But when she gets back to being sane, all her friends are hopping mad at her. in the end, Stacey gives them a talk on friendship (I loved that scene!) and they become friends again. IT'S A FABULOUS BOOK! CONGRATS, ANN, ON YET ANOTHER SUCCESS!
Another awesome BSC book, I recently reread it and it's definitely a good book. I loved Danielle in Jessi's Wish, so I knew I'd like this book... but she's totally out of control in this book! Not in a mean/defiant way, though, more in a "her parents aren't setting any limits" type of way. And I can understand why they want to give her freedom to do whatever she wants, it's the first time she actually *can* do these things, have the energy and drive to do them. She's had such a hard time that it's understandable to want to give her that free rein... But it goes too far, and her "creativeness" ends up getting her friends in trouble and even getting someone hurt. I'm really glad that everything got sorted out at the end, because I really like Danielle and it wasn't fair to her that her parents were acting like that... all kids need boundries.
