I thought that Runt by Nora Raleigh Baskin is an ok book. The book just didn't really reach out to me. I thought that the book should talk more about Stewart's life at home . Maybe an epilogue would help readers understand the book's ending a little better, because I thought that it was a little confusing. It needed to explain more, not just the ending but throughout the whole book so other readers can understand it better too. I recommend it to readers who like realistic fiction and school stories.
