I didn't love this book. I didn't hate it either, but I didn't love it. He Knew A Firefly was okay; I didn't mind reading it one time, but I wouldn't want to read it again. The idea of the story was interesting. I liked how it involved more than one central character, while still maintaining a main character, but I hate how it kept jumping from one person's point of view to the others. The entire book seemed to be written in first person, and kept switching. I found it to be annoying, trying to remember who's point of view I was reading at the time. I found the story to be well-written, descriptive, and the characters were complex, which I really liked. Overall, I would definitely recommend the book to others, as it really wasn't bad. I just personally couldn't get into for some reason. **I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.**
