Hershey Herself is a wonderful book about a girl named Hershey (just like the candy bar!) In the beginning Hershey's mom and her boyfriend Slade, get in a fight, while Hershey is at her friend Phoebe's house. Together the girls make a plan to get Slade to move out. When Hershey goes back to the house, her mom has been beaten up by Slade. She and Hershey move into a Women's Shelter, where they meet new people and have many adventures. I really liked this book!
