Just alright for me. I'm not a huge fan of depressing books, but I do like books that deal with serious issues, especially when they are mixed with hope. The book showed different perspectives of people dealing with the death of one boy. It was interesting to read, and rang true, as everyone deals with death in such different ways. However, I wish that the book had started a bit before the death, so that we got to know the main character as well as the family did.
