My review: Wow. You know those books that when you’re done reading them you kind of just sit there and stare off into space and your mind sort of goes blank? That’s what I did after I read this. It was just so profound.
I don’t think a book has ever made me cry as much this one did. It was really deep and made me think about all the people out there who have problems that are similar to Vera’s and Charlie’s. Also, the plot itself was written so beautifully and was so original that I just found myself wanting to devour the book even more. Overall, great read. Like really, really great.
I honestly can’t put into words my feelings about this book. It’s kind of like Perks of Being a Wallflower except more sad, and more involved with a larger variety of characters.
I think I’ll leave this review at that. Seriously go read this. It will probably be on my list of top favorites of 2013 because it was just so excellent. I was pleasantly surprised after reading Ask the Passengers which I didn’t really like and then I read this book and it was so excellent. Bottom line: GO READ IT.
See you soon!
