I kept seeing this book come up on different lists and blogs and everyone kept commenting on what a strong and powerful book it was. Since I enjoy reading books that make you think, I decided to read it for myself. Wow! This book is such an emotional read. It’s tender, beautiful, and absolutely devastating. I highly recommend this book to anyone that enjoys problem novels or just beautifully written stories.
