I wish it was possible to give this book 100 stars. My favorite book has always been The Notebook but I must say that has now been bumped down. Not in a bad way though. J.L. Berg gave this book everything. I literally sobbed like a baby through 85% of the book. I even woke up my boyfriend at one point because I was crying so hard. Don't worry I laughed and yelled at the characters too. This book pulled at every emotion in my soul. Within These Walls is beyond perfect that I can't even find the words to describe it. You will feel everything that Jude and Lailah feel. The fear, hope, loss, heartbreak, devastation, joy and true love. Jude was haunted by darkness from his past. The darkness destroyed him completely because he felt he needed to be punished from moving on with his life. Thanks to an innocent girl eating chocolate pudding at the hospital he worked as a CNA he started to change the way he felt about life. He started to live. One of my favorite lines from Jude was "I want to see you cross out each and every item on that list, if that what it takes to make you feel alive or normal. The truth is, you are far from normal. You are light-years away from the word. You are exceptional. The word normal would be an insult to your very nature." I also loved that J.L. Berg gave is the story from both Jude and Lailah. It allowed me to feel right there in the moment. I felt like a part of both of them. I highly recommend this book. It will make you laugh, smile and cry. It will make you angry and hopeful. Within these walls will remind you how unfair life is sometimes.

This book was fantastic! The sadness throughout this book coupled with the discovery associated with the sadness was remarkable. I absolutely LOVE Jude. The suffering he went through to come to where he ended up was very heartwarming. The growing she did because she was never able to experience anything was wonderful. How they both helped each other heal and discover was so beautifully written. I laughed, cried, cried some more but I have come to expect that from your books!

Awesome book! I loved the storyline, and the characters. It kept my interest from beginning to end. It was a sad, sweet, beautiful story. Author was an amazing storyteller. And the story was very well-written and original. This has been one of my favorite books. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars was because the ending was a bit rushed. But it was still a great book. Yes, I recommend this book. Gtx

This book was absolutely beautiful! I don't even know how to describe it, there are no words. What I do know is that it's one of those books that will stay with you long after you've finished reading. Right now there is a very special place in my heart for this story and truthfully, I'm kind of sorry that I read so fast because I didn't want it to end. The author has done an amazing job here because in my opinion, everything about it was perfect.  Lailah is a sweetheart and all she wants is a normal life. She doesn't take anything for granted and what she craves is to experience the little things in life. In a way, her character is like a life lesson for most of us.  Jude is a total heartthrob. I love that he is not perfect, he has his own emotional baggage and this just makes it more real. Jude and Lailah have been victims of life's circumstances, but when they find each other, everything changes for them.  The other characters and their side stories also add to the plot and I loved them as well. Within These Walls was just heartfelt and breathtaking in every way. It's a story where life is full of obstacles -it's not perfect but something perfect does in fact come out of it.  P.S. Lailah's Someday List at the end was totally the cherry on top for me! *I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*

Well written, emotional, real, raw, heartbreaking and endearing all wrapped up in one nicely woven story. Her characters are well defined and you can't help but fall in love with each one, even the ones you normally wouldn't like endear themselves to you at one point. I loved Lailah's bucket list. It was full of normal everyday occurrences with a mixture of whimsical fantasy dreams. It made me stop and re-evaluate what was truly important in life. When to slow down and just enjoy living. But then Jude goes and delivers his placeholders, trying to cross off as many numbers on her list as possible has to be one of the most touching things about this story. You may cry at some point while reading this book, I know I did, but that's not hard for me to do when I connect with the characters.
