I loved this book. It was sad though but still was a wonderful book to read. Teens will fall in love with this book. I couldn't stop reading this book. I started at 9:00 pm reading this and couldn't stop reading until I was finished with it. This was the book that made me love reading. After reading this book I thought I was going to read all the books in the world and have no more books to read.

I absolutely love this book. It flows so well and I love the free verse style. I read it all in one sitting, it never has dull moment.
