I didn't know what to expect when I started it. I actually read it to cross it of my reading bingo.
But it was a good reading. It had the kind of writing that just catches you, it captivates you from the start, and once you open the book you can't let it go.
There were parts where I felt so impotent against life itself, the things the characters went through are not out of this world. They are, in fact pretty real.
It was sad, it was funny, it was cute. I liked it.
