pg. 18Do you think the title fits the book? Why or why not? What would two alternate titles be? Explain.
I haven't gotten far enough in the book to tell if the title is appropriate, but the back of the book seems like it would be. The back explains that it she has ran away before and now she runs away again and is finally on her own. So far that has happened is that her mother died 2 years ago and she doesn't have a father, so she is with this couple and they lock her up in the laundry room and don't let her do anything. Two alternative titles could be Agony Day by Day, because her life is terrible, or because instead of chapters this book is in journal entries, so a title could be My Miserable Life.
