  1. i just finished the crabapple tree a minute ago. this book is amazing. i loved that busy’s bestfriend was a kid who was slow and that that is what got her out of the little small town with her parents who didnt understand. and gave her a chance to become who she was. other than connecting with the relationship with busy and brandy wilson i dont connect with your story at all. but it was one of the best books ive read. you did a wonderful job.
