    Don't miss this book

    I do not write book reviews, I simply read and enjoy, but this book is not like anything I have read in a really long time. It moved me to tears and laughter throughout. I read the book in one sitting, and I know that I will continue to go back to it again and again. Amber Appleton makes me want to be a better person. I don't want to share what it is about, because I went into this book not having any idea, but I cannot express how beautiful and important this book is. I loved it from the first sentence, and could not stop. I kept thinking, this is the best moment during the book, and then something else poignant and wonderful would happen--until the very last page! Although this book is classified as young adult literature, it is really something every person should read and will be moved by!

    We all have Amber Appleton inside of us!!! This story crosses generations....

    This is the second book I have read by Matthew Quick. The Silver Linings Playbook was
    excellent and a perfectly written story.
    This is beautifully written and a perfectly magnificent story.
    I suggest this to all ages, even though it is classified as young adult. There are parts written in here that made me feel as though they were written about me. And the ending
    is fabulous. I couldn't put it down; and have already read it three times.

    Essential Reading for the Hopeful

    Amber Appleton sure has had an impact on me. She has dealt with so much yet she remains hopeful and confident in who she is and what she wants to become. Life can be so tragic but Amber still believes in spreading hope and love.

    This is the perfect book for someone looking for strong characters and a positive story line. Teenagers will love Matthew Quick's ability to connect with their world and adults will appreciate the positive message uniquely spread throughout.

    A great read for the casual reader and since I am a teacher, this book would serve as a perfect addition to many summer reading lists!
