6. I think this book would be a great one for teen girls that are struggling with family issues, especially divorce. Peck does a great job of writing from Jessica's perspective.

7. I don't think I would use this particular book for a class, but instead would recommend it for young girls that might relate to the story.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0440218861, Mass Market Paperback)

When Jessica's parents divorce and her father leaves, Jessica decides that the best way to punish her mother is to retreat to her room, a shrine to her glamorous traveling photographer dad.



Then Jessica's mother offers to let her visit her father in Mexico for the holidays, at the fabulous house of her father's uncle Lucius, a famous painter. Jessica is thrilled.



Once there, she falls under the spell of Lucius's home, and his Christmas guests, Brooke and Tony, who are college age. Together the three young people race around Acapulco in an old Jeep, swim, and go dancing. It's paradise. Except for dad. Here in paradise he's not the father Jessica dreamed of at all....
