I'm surprised that there's no thread for this book. I liked reading this book. I enjoyed reading about the concert, such as how Dawn tried to get the tickets, how she tried to bribe Jack and Carol into letting her go and what happened at the actual concert. I like that Dawn and Sunny made up at the end but it's sad that Mrs. Winslow's condition has gotten worse and that she'll die in the next book.

Did anyone else find it unfair that Mr. Schafer grounded Dawn for Ducky getting drunk? Or that he made her promise that her friends wouldn't drink? How was she suppose to control what her friends did? She was punished for being smart & responsible by calling her dad for a ride home when Ducky couldn't drive. I can see why Dawn didn't explain about everything Ducky had been going through, he probably wouldn't have listened. Loved how Dawn was brave enough to steal Ducky's keys & how Ducky admitted it wasn't safe for him to drive.
My mind is in chaos and its only cure is your banging it against a headboard-Mary Ann, Amsterdam! Amsterdam!
I enjoyed this one, but it ticked me off the way Sunny treated Dawn and Ducky. I realize she is going through a lot but wow she said some nasty things.
I thought she was rude to Ducky (although what she says to Ducky reminds me of what Dawn says to Mary Anne in 'Farewell Dawn'. I guess Sunny and Dawn are more alike than they'd like) but Dawn that evening behaved like such a little brat (when she 'sweetly' says that's Sunny's dad doesn't care about her because he's so wrapped up in her mother's illness, like, ooof, that's cruel even for Dawn) that I wasn't particularly upset for her.
