This book is the best book of my life. I actually have 2 copies because I reread it so much. The characters are so real and relatable. This is a must read.

I loved the way this book was written where it was a collection of her diary like entries and poems and how it all came together to describe the characters.

I normally don't cry while reading books. I think one of the few times I did cry was when Sirius died in Harry Potter. This book made me cry. I relate to Cordelia so much. She reminded me so much of myself that the ending made me cry all the more. I found it hard to believe that this book, about a teenage girl, was written by a man. Chamber's in depth view of the teenage girl's psyche was amazing. Cordelia is very real and what she thinks, feels, sees and does are very real as well. This book will probably be a favorite of mine for a long time.

i adored this book. it really makes you think. cordelia is the most real character i have ever read. she truly comes off the page. i felt like she was someone i saw everyday and had known my whole life, i even had dreams about her. this book really encompasses everything it means to grow up. cordelia's growth is so natural and organic, you really grow along with her. this is a book about what it means to be a woman, what it means to be in love, but most of all what it means to be human. i highly recommend this book for it's beautiful depth and clarity.

I am not an openly emotional person. Books, movies, songs... they don't make me cry. This book did. I bawled my eyes out. After I got this book, I read it nonstop. It was my constant companion. I'd carry it around with me and bump into things, but I kept reading. I loved almost every word of it. It was funny, frustrating, amazing, uplifting, and heartbreaking, all in one. This is one of the best books I have ever read. <3

Omg!!! This is an absolutely amazing book. If you are currently reading it and bored to death, don't get discouraged, you can't truely love it until you finish it.

I have only cried from 2 books in my life. Those 2 books I have never connected to like I did this one. I felt like this girl, was apart of me. The way it was written was so, expressive, so intriguing that I could NOT put it down. The beginning was slow, but i read on knowing it would be a good book. What I didn't expect was loving a book to death.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book!!! My teenage daughter asked me to read this book and I can say it has changed life in many ways!!! Definately spiritually awesome and realistic. Thank You Aidan Chambers for bringing my daughter and I even closer.

It is absolutely my favorite book! Cordelia is a deep person who really understands the world and writes amazing poems. Her love for Will is very personal. She describes the world around her and what her view on it is. I would recomend it to people 14 and up because it is very descriptive. Read it!

i couldn't believe how easily i related to cordelia, especially when i found out the author's relatively old and a man! i loved her poetry, and she had some really great philosophical musings. just one thing... towards the middle, there's a confusing part where the book splits. i read the a part first then the b part, and it made it easier.
