Wonderful! I was drawn to Lilly immediately and needed to find out what made her tick. Couldn't put this down!

Lilly was so relatable. A girl you would like for a friend who's is strong and compassionate. But she has a secret pain that brings her to the end of her endurance and finally breaks her. And like so many things, it's in the breaking that she is made whole. A heartbreaking and redeeming journey.

I cannot say adequately just how much I liked this book, 10 stars would no

My emotions while reading this book: Sad. Intrigued. Compelled. It's like seeing the world thru the eyes of a lost soldier of life. It's sad to think that there are a million "Lilly Barnes" out there. Physically fit, but emotionally broken. This book is a definite must read for teenagers out there who think that life is full of sh*t. It's not. Last but not the least, I felt happy that Lilly Barnes found her "sweet days" at the end.
