This book is based on a true story and it shows as the author writes the characters so well. The main character, Mollie, is written with such insight and her life is a joy to read. Her family members and the experiences she had are engaging and the book is a roller coaster ride of emotions.

The fact that its a true story makes it all the more interesting to read than if it were just a fictional character.
