I wish I read this in high school so I'd know how to express myself freely.
It has similar vibes to Dear Mr. Henshaw by Beverly Cleary, also an all-time favorite.
With Haddix, every book I read captures my heart and soul.
I read other books with similar plot, but they have less effect on me.
Besides, that's a catchy title right there, so I put it in 2020 PopSugar Reading Challenge: a book with a title that caught your attention.
Definitely worth recommending to those who are struggling to open up about themselves. ( )

Margaret Haddix is an excellent storyteller. Here she gets to the heart of why so many young people just can't make school work for them. excellent read. ( )

Tish's English teacher, Mrs. Dunfrey, requires the students to write in a journal 3 times a week. She specifically said that if the students mark an entry "Do Not Read" she will not read it. At first, Tish distrusts the promise. She tests Mrs. Dunfrey by writing about harmless things that no one else would know (the fact that Tish can crochet for example). Once Tish realizes that the journal is safe, she begins writing freely and talking about how difficult her life is becoming. Her father is abusive and has left them. Her mother is depressed and doesn't do anything except cry that she wants the father back. Tish has an 8-year old brother, Matt and she takes care of him. She talks about how much she misses her Granma and how she doesn't really care about school. She talks about her job and how she deals with problems there.
Tish started doing the journal because she was required to, but she gradually comes to realize that writing in the journal is like talking to a friend. But, will she ever let Mrs. Dunfrey read any of her real entries? And what is going to happen to Tish & Matt.
My Opinion
I enjoyed this book. It is told completely through Tish's journal entries which are very heartfelt and meaningful. Tish struggles to be the adult in her family and is dealing with issues far beyond her years. I liked her strength and her vulnerability. And the end of the book is satisfying without feeling too trite. ( )

Teens will relate to and enjoy this book. The determination to keep hidden all the embarrassing aspects of their lives is a struggle all teens can understand. Keeping an English class writing journal is also an assignment that most teens know about. Even though few teens are unlucky enough to experience the life of the main character, they are intuitive enough to know that there are peers in every school who deal with parents who are barely coping. Unfortunately, some readers will be disappointed by the lack of character development and will be left feeling that something is lacking. However, the journal format allows you to cut the author some slack in that the writing is 100% that of a teenager, with no narrative/author input. ( )

I read this book when I was in Junior High, it was one of those stories that I remembered vaguely but I knew I had liked at the time. It’s very short and in the format of journals assigned by Tish’s English teacher, Mrs. Dunphrey.

Tish has been forced to grow up much faster than the normal fifteen year old. Some might say she’s even more grown up than her mother who forgets she has children and only pines for the love of her life. The love of her life is less than perfect, in fact, he’s a terrible man who beat his family and then left them for two years. Tish takes care of her younger brother Matt, feeding and clothing both of them with the little money she makes at her part-time, minimum wage job.

This story is sad, a brief look at a broken home. One that I was happy I decided to reread in the end. If nothing else, it made me thankful that my parents were always there for me growing up, even if we didn’t always see eye to eye. If you have people who love and care for you cherish it because not everybody is so lucky. ( )

All right, Mrs. Dunphrey, you said we had to do these journals, but if we wanted to write something personal and private we could mark an entry, "Do not read."
