The ending of my book was very good, because the main character, Melinda, finally got the confidence to speak her mind and forget about the past. Throughout the whole book Melinda goes through high school feeling scared and not being able to talk, because of a horrible incident that happened over the summer. Finally in the end, her voice breaks through and she is allowed to talk to people about what happened and eventually let go of the horrible incident. It is a good ending, because it shows a character that would be very easy to relate to and makes her into an inspiration for the readers. I can't really think of another way to end this book. The author did a great job of bringing the plot all the way around and completing it very nicely.
