The book Paper Things is an incredible book, and very enjoyable to read. It is a book about a girl, Ari, and her older brother Gage, who move out of their guardian’s house because she isn’t treating Gage well. They have to move from their friend’s house to living on the streets, and it gets hard for them. They don’t know where they are going to go next. Ari’s grades start dropping, she loses friends, and Gage can’t find a job. It gets to the point that Ari considers going back to their guardian’s house.

The thing that keeps Ari happy is her paper things, paper doll cut-outs that remind her of her real family. Join Ari and Gage on their journey as they fend for themselves and eventually turn out ok. You should definitely read this book. You won’t regret it!
