I think that the book is really good because it really shows how she feels. The pictures represent how she is scared and she is not sure about what she wants. I think a dragon was a really good choice because it is scary and it represents depression and shows that she is scared of it. The feather represents hope and she has hope that it is going to be ok. I like how the pictures show what she is feeling and shows her emotion throughout. The pictures are in black and white because it shows that it's dark and all she can feel is darkness, she feels alone and isolated. So because it's dark she shows that there is no light so she doesn't know her way. Dragons are big and powerful so she is showing that depression is really powerful and it can eat you up inside and make you feel like you are alone. In the end she changes her perspective and she realises that she is not alone she can talk to lots of people about it and it will make her feel better. It shows that maybe it was fear and it isn't that scary. I think it is a really good book for people over eight but not young people. It is supposed to make people understand. The start it was all dark so it showed the emotion and at the end it's lighter so it shows that she's not scared anymore and she has hope.
