    All the stories were a little sad for my taste, but that's only my opinion

    They were touching, but on the sad side. Try it for yourself and tell everyone how YOU thought it was. I want YOUR opinion. So read it and post a review on how YOU thought it was. EVERYONE wants to know. The whole world of E-readers depends on you. So tell us, do YOU like, love, dislike, or hate EVERY LIVING THING by Cynthia Rilant? Tell us NOW!
