This book is just so incredibly human and real. It's one of the most honest books I've read about life, loss, and love. It's one that will stay with me for a long time.

Good Points
This is a absolutely stunning book filled with raw, vivid characters who will stay with you for a long time. Jennifer Donnelly's writing is reaches whole new levels of beautiful; it's simply one of the best I've ever read.

Donnelly did an insane amount of research for this novel and she manages to weave fiction with reality in such a flawless way, you don't even question once if the information she presented is factual. You honestly believe that some of it so real the way she paints it.
