Where do I start with this book? It was beautiful. I loved every page and I only wish there was more of it. This is the kind of book that I love reading. It is a book of self discovery, friendship, and true love. I loved the characters. All of them. Sam is an intriguing heroine that you can't help but adore.

This was an emotional read for me. I know it won't be for everyone. I just have a huge soft spot for foster kids and their unique trials. I did a lot of (not so) subtle eye swiping while reading.

This is a beautiful debut. If you are looking for a fresh new voice in literature, one that will make you laugh, cry, and leave you with a smile on your face, then give Dear Mr. Knightley a try.

Modern daddy long legs

This is a good book, although at times the narrative gets kind of stodgy and too convoluted. It is a pretty close copy of the book Daddy Long Legs. I knew that about halfway through the book. Not an original story, but I enjoyed it.

    Plot spoilers

    Well, here is another book that thanks to all the obnoxious plot spoilers, telling everything about the story...including the ending, then bragging how they got their book for free....is now useless to read. Who wants to pay for a book that is now ruined thanks to these a$$holes who just have to ruin the book for others. Thank you plot spoilers. Please get a life and stop ruining books for other readers.

    Fought to get to the end......felt dragged through a long, unnecessary traffic jam to such a predictable
    ending.  Wanted to smack Sam upside the head, so many times.  Should just have put the book down and be done with it much earlier.
