Read in July, 2011

The saving grace of this book was the perspective of the narrator, a 5-year-old boy, otherwise, its almost like a Lifetime movie from start to finish. Almost sickeningly poignant, heart-wrenching, and overwrought. That's basically what it boils down to. Yes, it totally pulled at my heartstrings, but I felt a little cheap afterward...kinda like when I find myself watching Lifetime movies.
