Review
it was a very nice book i liked the author from previous books i had read so i was trying some of her other books and she keeps true to her writing style which i always enjoy so this book was very good i have been kind of desperate for books to read and this one was slightly a bit to young for me but i still liked it and appreciated the effort the author put into it.  Shaker Heights Public Library Catalog

this book made me want to cry it made me feel really close to the characters and feel almost desolate for them i know it is fictional but the book seemed so hopeless and sad that i near the end of the book was sobbing in my heart it is a younger read but i still really liked the emotion put into the book.  Shaker Heights Public Library Catalog
