This book was heart-wrenching. But it was strangely hopeful. Throughout the entire book there is a teeny little amount of hope, just sitting inconspicuously in the background. Sometimes it's hard to see, but it's most definitely there. I fell in love with this book within the first few pages, and I don't think I can recommend it highly enough. I plan on rereading soon, and I have given it to my Mom to read. After that, I am going to force it on Jason. If I know you, there is a chance I will try to make you read it. Ye have been warned.
In other news, I have found my most recent favourite spot to read. There's this great tree in the backyard, and it has a spot that is perfect for sitting in. It has a place where I can stick my book while I climb up, and if I happen to have a water bottle, there's a spot for me to stick that too. It's like this tree was made to be read in. The only downside is that I can't read in it if it's raining outside, because I would ruin my book. The ruining of books is against Elizabethian law. If you do, you can be sentenced with death in the chamber of tortures. And not just any chamber of tortures, no, this is the chamber of tortures from the movie Second Hand Lions, with Count Rugen, his Machine, and that weird monk dude (all from the Princess Bride, if you didn't catch it.), thrown in, for good measure. There will be no Miracle Max present.
So... have you ever read this book? What did you think? Have you ever accidentally ruined a book? Are there books that you would like to destroy on purpose? (I promise not to throw you in the Chamber of Tortures. Maybe.)
Also, Happy Mother's Day Everyone!!!
