    By morgan stroganiff this book rocks

    After reading this book you will be left pondering what other amazing books such as this one you have missed out on. You will feel many different emotions. Like me i felt sympathy for bret because he had to deal with lukimea. Angry at jason for ditching kathy for angela. I am surtently not some one to cry but i did a lot. And i admit it i did feel a little bit jelouse that i dont have a brother that loves me like bret loves kathy. But take my word for and read this book.

    Touching (Tissues, tissues, tissues, and TISSUES!!!!!)

    This is a very very good book. It was also very touching. I cried so many times. I love the love Brett has for his sister. It was a very good story.
    I like Kathy but sometimes I got a little mad at her and I admire her. She's a lot braver than me. I could never yell at the football jock, act in front of the school among other things.

    Excellent, fabulous, wonderful, marvelous

    An awesome book. This is not only a book about a brother and a sister, but about two friends and a girl finding the true gospel. As Kathy finds out more about her brother that she feels stole her childhood, she learns a lot about herself in the process. Anyone who is dying for a good read needs to get this book.

    Great inspiring novel - Must read!

    This book was great! Original story with lots of surprises. I was inspired and touched, I laughed a lot, and yes I cried too. As I read Kathy's story, I related to her character, it brought back so many memories from high school and I found myself laughing out loud, because I realized I had had similar experiences in high school and just forgotten about them. The story has a lot of good moral lessons. In the beginning, I wasn't sure what to think of the main characters. But as the events unfolded in the story, the author did a great job developing the characters and showing the contrast in the growth and maturity of their personalities as they came to realize what was most important in life. This is a great, wholesome, uplifting story. I couldn't put it down and read it within just a few days - I didn't want it to end. A great gift idea for any young adult, parent or friend, and my husband enjoyed it just as much as I did. It was strongly recommended to me and I would and have recommended it in a heartbeat.

    If ye love me, read this book

    This book was the ideal definition of a 'can't put it down for a second' book. I am not a cryer in the least, let alone a reader for any sort of romance, yet this book had tears streaming down my face the entire time I was reading it. I only put it down to blow my nose and wipe my eyes because I couldn't read the font through the tears. It is indeed a touching novel,and makes you look back and be grateful for the gospel (if you're mormon). My mom was the one who recommended the book to me, and it wasn't until she sat me down and thrust the book in my face that I read it, and I do not regret it in the least. I am not an emotional person, or at least I wasn't, until I finished reading this book. I loved this book and would recommend it to all who enjoy a good and wholesome reading- and even those who don't because by the end, they will!

    You won't be able to put it down!

    This is a book for anyone who's every been a teenager, a parent, a sibling, or a friend. Be prepared to have your emotions put on edge, and don't pick up this book unless you have enough time to finish it. You won't want to put it down. Unbelievable that this book is the author's first effort.
