This book is beautifully written. A heartbreaking exploration of the tragedy of Matthew Shepherd's murder that will make you angry, heartbroken, and full of sorrow, yet is strangely hopeful, too. This is a book that should be read by EVERYONE. It takes less than an hour to read, but the message lives on for much longer in the hearts of everyone that picks it up.
