This is a good story but...my expectations were high because of many glowing reviews, both here and in the dust jacket. I don't agree with all of the author's assertions. I felt as though a message was being hammered into my brain the entire time I was reading this book. The story is quite heavy handed with the life lessons. Foremost among these, at least to myself, is that everyone is Special.
