Beautifully written! The characters are written so well in the way that they speak and their mannerisms that they seem to jump right off the page. So believable it’s almost scary! Be warned this is a tearjerker!!!
I really enjoyed this one. One of the best I’ve read in a while. The author has masterful skills and I look forward to reading the second installment. I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes a good YA read with a tissue box. ( )
