Have you ever lost someone you have loved? Sunny's diary shows her emotional side even though she was one to rebel. Her mom was dealing with cancer and Sunny had to go through every moment of it until the end. This book made me cry! I am not one of those people to cry at fiction but Ann M. Martin made it so realistic for me. It was like I traveled inside Sunny's mind, through her thoughts. This was one of the best books I have ever read. I would recommend it to teens around the world.

im a great fan of ann martin. SUNNY DIARY#3 was EXTRAORDINARY. it is SOOOOOOOO touching. i think it is the best in the seires. SUNNY is a WONDERFUL. SHE IS A VERY rich charachter. she is ,in her third diary,facing her problems at last. she is so hurt and the reader feels it,it is so HARD to say goodbye or farwell to a person especially if it is your mom. ann has succeeded in going deep through her.the readers tears is a great evidence. im 16 and i see the book is suitable for all ages. anns aim isnt describing sunny s suffering only but i think she wants to tell us how LUCKYwe are. we should VALUE our parents more and stop complaing about our lives. all over the world many people are suffering even more than sunny .the diaries give us HOPE. .even sunny HAS a bright side to look at. She still has her friends . so she will be healed soon. in fact ANN shows sunny that her mom ISNT DEAD. she WILL be always be with her.in her mind. in her heart ,in Sunny herself.i think ann deserves the nobel prize,doesent she?so ahead and read CD#12.

Format: Paperback
Sunny is a teenager who is going through a tradgety. She is loosing her mom to canser. Sunny used to cope with this by skipping school, not studying, and even running away. Iused to think that sunny was a selfish character, because she didnt even visit her mother in the hospital. In this book, she stopped running from her problems. She handled her mothers death with a lot of maturity. I think Sunny is very brave. Even though she is a character from a book, i respect her.

Format: Paperback
This book was wondeful, and [at least in my opinion] it was probably the best in the series. its incredibly sad and heart wrenching, the torment sunny went through trying to deal with her mothers condition, and her death... I could almost feel her pain. And seeing how strong sunny was.. and how she overcame some of it... the emotion she showed, turning to her friends in her time of need. The fact that her friends didn't desert her, (as some might, cuz they could have felt weird or uneasy) made her a stronger person as well. So anyway, i give this book 5 stars... its excellent, you should definetley buy it. And if you don't believe me? read the dozens of other reviews here...? Lol, but its your decision, of course. :) but if you buy it, you'll like it, i promise :)

This book opened up my heart into a new perspective. I couldn't imagin loosing my mother but this book opened up my eyes and made me see more of what a tragedy loosing your mother is. After all the [stuff] she gave to all her freinds they all realized that it was a time of need for her. With her freinds coping her every step of the way she managed to survive the tragedy of her loss. If you are a fanatic as I am READ THIS BOOK and have a box of tissues reading it you'll need it.

This book is a masterpiece. It hit so close to home for me. I have a plauge of cancer in my family, and I lost my father to cancer. It made me think hard about family values. I've cried maybe once in the past 5 years, but when I read this book, I couldn't stop. I still have tear stains on the pages of the book. If you don't already own this book, go buy it now. You won't regret it. promise.

Format: Paperback
snny's third diary wasn't as good as her second and third but it was still well written. i liked her other diaries better because they delt with more issues. there was more storylines involved that made it interessting. in her third book, the center focus was on her mom's dying. mrs. martin seemed to really prolong the death and drag it out. it got to a pont where i was sick of reading about it. i think she should of used half the book on sunny saying goodbye and her mom dying and then the other half on something else. her friends were hardly mentioned, when before they took up a lot of the book. i like hearing about the other character's in the series from each character's perspectives and that was missing from this one. i enjoy hearing what sunny has to say about her friends because she usually has a funny view on them. the book was really sad, though. i cried through the ending and the funeral. afterwards, i was sort of depressed, but i can't say i was surprised. everyone who's followed the series has known that her mom was going to die. out of all the character's, i like sunny the best. despite the fact that she seems like she should be at least 14 or 15 and not 13 (none of the characters act their ages), i think she's the most realistic. dawn is portrayed sort of babyish in her 1st and 3rd diaries (how she is so shocked to see people drinking, etc) and ducky, although he is a loyal friend, he's kind of wimpy. (i guess i don't understand why a 16 yr. old guy would want to hang out with 13 yr. girs.) maggie is kind of obsesive but amalia seems nice. her diaries are interessting to read. overall, i think the series is good and would recommend that everyone read it. it is nothing like the bsc, which is a good thing. i just wish that mrs.Read more ›
