This is the saddest book I have yet to read in my life. I was depressed for nearly a month after reading it and burst out in tears when thinking about it. Superb writing, absolutely as always (Bravo, Ellen!) and achingly real. I would re-read it if it didn't mean another month of my life like this:

Erhm, ok. All funny crying gifs aside, read this. Please read this. It's gorgeous and moving and it really makes you think, as do all of Ellen's books.

Karen Love it. I cannot take reading it since I get so depressed anyway. Now I know not to.

Damion I totally agree with you, this book has insane feelings within it, everything is vivid as if I'm right there living in pattyn's shoes. Hopkins did amazing at showing these feelings, I truly felt sad and happy and love all these emotions just going crazy because of this book. The format that she put the words in was amazing too, I was never bored and I could just read for hours.
