If you take it in the context it is written, it can be an incredible read.  Marina was so gifted, and by reading between the lines of her work, you can pull more from her writing than meets the eye.

I loved this book and found the author's writing to be engaging and profound. The title draws you in and the writing keeps you there. I am not young and the author's youth does come through in her stories. But, that is what I especially like about the book, that some of the stories are fresh and some are very deep and sad. It is such a loss that the world only had this bright and witty young woman for such a short period of time. I recommended this book to my daughter as I think that she will like this talented author's writing as well.

Inspiring for young people.

Beautifully written and she wrote amazingly about coping with loss and love. I would recommend these stories to almost everyone because they are short and beautiful and very enjoyable to read.

Solid powerful writing, absolutely loved some of the stories, but others felt lacking. Definitely worth picking up regardless!

Many of the world’s greatest artists, writers, and thinkers have died young, and while I feel that her writing probably would have developed with age, I loved what she wrote and got a lot out of this book. At the end, I was sad to say goodbye to a woman whom I would have liked to have seen live to give us more of the same.

I loved reading the variety of her stories. She had the ability to draw me into her story quickly and make me see it from the inside. I would have loved to read her first novel or full length book of any subject. She becomes the star that burned out too quickly. But not before giving us this gift.

This will probably not hold the interest of very many readers outside of the author's peer group. It is like reading a young girl's journal, in which she writes about...things young girls write about.

Difficult read as many stories started in the middle of a situation and dodnt really end. Writing not great. Sounded like her middle school essays. Most stories did not hold my attention. Some were just plain odd.
