I couldnt put this book down. I went through every emotion there is when i read it. I think its a great book for adults and teenagers alike. My teenage son is reading it now. Its easy to read and just draws you in. I loved it.
A fantastic book, I just couldn't put it down. This book should definitely make it to the 'Best Sllers List'.
This is an excellent book. As an adult I enjoyed it and I believe for multiple reasons it's a great book for teenagers to read. In many respects they will relate to the lives of the teenagers in the book. The book relays the message that their actions and decisions can affect their entire lives.
This book is incredible. It has Drama, Love, Tragedy and Everyday challenges. I laughed, I cried, I felt sad and I felt good. The author not only captures the everyday occurrence of adolescence but they also did not ignore spirituality. This book is great.
