I received this book from the author to review honestly

My Rating: 5 Stars for all the feels

Me during and after I finished this book,

   I'm not going to try to explain just how this book touched me. I'm not going to try to pick it apart looking for any small issue it may have. I'm not even going to try to list the things I loved about it because even though I gave it 5 stars, I don't think I loved it. I will tell you that I hate crying. I didn't cry reading The Fault In Our Stars, I didn't cry when I saw that movie either. I almost cried for Harry Potter 7, but I spent this whole book, from page one, with tears in my eyes. I had to stop constantly to calm myself down enough that I could see again and still I couldn't stop reading and hoping that it would end differently than I knew it had to.

I will say that I think every single person in the world should read this book, needs to feel the things this book makes you feel, needs to understand the things this book teaches you. I will also say I have no idea how this author wrote this book, but that it needed to be written and that it needs to be read.

This isn't a book you can love or hate, it's not fiction. It's life, good and bad, described in words and sentences to make up a book that is less than 200 pages and yet is so powerful, is so moving, that you forget how to breathe.

I'm not going to tell you what this book is about because I think you can tell enough from the description, heck just from the title, and I won't tell you that you're going to love this book because I don't know if you can. But I will tell you that as sad as it, as moving as it, as heart wrenching and breaking at it is, you will not regret reading it. I know I didn't.

Would I Recommend This? Yes.
Who To? Everyone.
Will I read more from this author(or series)? Yup.

  1. I wasn't especially interested in this book, until I read your review. Now, I've to read it! :)

  2. Okay, I got goosebumps just from your review. I obviously HAVE to have this book. And some of the proceeds go to charity? My goodness, yes. I feel like this is what we need more of in the book world. I want to take people who say YA isn't "real" literature and shove books like this right in their faces. In fact, I just pre-ordered it.

    Your review was simply beautiful. Thank you for sharing this.

    1. Yay! I'm so glad my review convinced you to buy this book because you're completely right, this is the kind of book we need more of. It's the kind that can change lives.

      I hope you enjoy it(if that's possible) and keep tissues near by!

  3. I kinda of expected your review to be like this based on that blurb and if it wasn't I would be really disappointed by this book. I mean it's amazing to read book that change you and this one seems to be one of these. I'm going to get it to my TBR list. Great review :)

    1. Thanks! Yeah I would definitely say that this is one of those books that completely lives up to its blurb. =)
