Beautiful and bittersweet

I expected to cry but not so much! Even though I knew someone would die, since this is a Lurlene McDaniel book, I didn't expect to care so much about these wonderful characters and to feel such sadness. This is a great read, but don't forget the tissues!!

Good Points
All the characters, from the teens to the adults, are well-developed. Julie and Luke's story is so tender and heart-breaking you can't stop reading. Ms. McDaniel's writing style is very easy to read. The dialogue is realistic, and the settings from the Indiana hometown to LA to hospitals to football games are so well-drawn it's like watching a movie. In fact, this story would make a great movie!
