In her efforts to hang on following the disappearance of her stepmother, Casey resorts to anything, including robbery.
Say Yes, by Audrey Couloumbis takes place in New York City, in modern times. It is realistic fiction, and is kind of like a survival story. It is in a form where the sentences are very short and the chapters are only about 1-5 pages long.

The main character in this story is Casey, who is a twelve-year-old girl. Another main character in the story is Paulie, who is the around fifteen-year-old adopted son of Mr. Loach, the super of Casey's apartment. There is also Fran, Casey's step-grandmother, Sylvia, Casey's stepmother, and Karen, Casey's best friend. In the book, Casey and Sylvia are living together in an apartment. Then, one day when Casey comes home from school, Sylvia is gone. Her clothes aren't in her closet and some of her belongings are missing from her room. Casey has to survive by herself so Children's Services don't take her away to be adopted, since she has no other family. She isn't left with much money, and it soon runs out. Then, Paulie offers Casey a choice where she could have enough money for rent and food for a long time, but it's against the law. Casey has to decide whether or not to take the choice, and how to survive if she doesn't.

The main problem of the book is all throughout the book. Casey has to hide that nobody is taking care of her, and she has to act perfectly normal around everybody. She also has problems with money, and the apartment turns into a junkyard because there is nobody to clean it. The problems of this book are person vs. person, person vs. self and even person vs. society in some cases.

My favorite part of the book was when Casey goes to the zoo to escape all her problems and to just relax. There are flashbacks of what she and Sylvia used to do at the zoo, and the things they paid attention to most of all. This was my favorite part of the book because it is different than the rest of the plot; it's just a break where Casey shows a different, more sensitive, side to herself.

I liked this book a pretty good amount because it has a good storyline and it's interesting, but it's kind of creepy in some parts and even a little disgusting. I would recommend it to people who like survival stories, since Casey has to live on a little amount of money that Sylvia left behind. It's a kind of sad book too, and it has a good amount of suspense and action. It's a unique book that I think most people would like. I would give Say Yes 4 stars. * * * *
I read an okay book titled Say Yes by Audrey Couloumbis. It is a realistic fiction book set in modern time in a city. It mainly takes place in and near a 12 year old girl's apartment which she shares with her stepmother, Sylvia.

The main characters in this story were a 12 year old girl named Casey and a teenage boy named Paulie who Casey later becomes friends with.

The main problem in this story is when Casey comes home to an empty apartment; she doesn't worry too much because she just thinks that Sylvia just took a late shift and Casey goes about her day not caring where Sylvia is and what she is doing. But when Sylvia hasn't showed up in the morning, Casey knows something's not right. Sylvia's left money in an envelope on the fridge, but Sylvia never does that. She wonders what happened to Sylvia and she is determined to find out. She explores many new places, and gets into trouble now and then since she's alone. She does things she's not used to doing, and sometimes those things aren't very good. Casey has no idea what has happened to Sylvia and she doesn't know if Sylvia will come back. Casey thinks that the police will put her in foster care, so she's got to find help. That's when she bumps into Paulie, who is willing enough to help her out. Casey really wants to get his help, but she find out that it comes at a price. If Casey says yes, then she'll be breaking the law and she could get into even more trouble if they're caught. But if she says no, she doesn't know how she'll make it through. She wishes that Sylvia had never left her. Casey feels really mad at Sylvia but at the same time sad. Sylvia was one of the last people that were close to her. If Sylvia never returns, then who will Casey count on?

My favorite part of the book I can't tell you because it could give something away!

I didn't really like this book because it was rushed at the end. I liked it in the beginning and in the middle because it as much more suspenseful and exciting. There was a lot more action in these parts.

I would recommend this book to people who like mysteries and suspense because it is a mystery (Sylvia has disappeared!) and it has lots of suspenseful parts in it. I would recommend this book to people of any ages, because it really is a pretty good book.
