This is a book, simply, that makes you feel good and reaffirms life. A beautiful novel about following dreams and believing in oneself.
And it all comes down to this sentence:
And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.
That is the whole novel contained in a matter of words. It's the kind of thing I wish I had picked up when I was fifteen, rather than something like, say, Fight Club or Catcher in the Rye, which wallow in angst and loathing. Here is a book that gives the opposite: a belief in the power of life and the will to live.
