If you haven't read this book, I highly suggest it!
I can confidently say that this is the best book I've read in the past couple of years. Natalie Lund did a wonderful job of bringing the characters to life, along with the story itself. When I grabbed this book, I wasn't really that excited for it, seeing as it didn't sound nor look like any book I've ever read and enjoyed. However, from the very first page, I couldn't put it down. The way Lund worked with grief and bullying was phenomenal. The entire plot stayed steady, not rushing nor being drawn out. My only issue with the book was Callie. Although I now understand why she acted the way she did with her mother while she was dying, when I was reading the book it stressed me out. Having lost my own mother without warning or time to prepare, I hated the way she kept shying away from her mother, avoiding her as often as possible. Of course, I wasn't thinking about what it would be like to watch your mother slowly dying, but the only thing I could focus on while reading was her behavior. When I finished the book, after thinking about it, I did understand. Other than that, I loved the characters - the ones that were meant to be loved, of course. I've recommended this book to anyone who's asked for a book to read, and I'll continue doing so.
