Read in September, 2012

this is one of those books which neither has a happy nor a tragic ending. but it ends content with hopes. and those kind of books are really rare to find because most books would always find a way to work out things in the end. and thats why i really really LOVED THIS BOOK!!
Reading the story lead me to shed big drops of tears until the end. and even after i finished the story, i was crying like crazy and yes i cried the whole night! i admit im one of those who have a soft spot inside but no other has turned me into the emotional wreck that i was after reading the book. my heart broke a couple of times. some wounds are so deep they can never be healed. that is basically the main theme of the story which i absolutely loved.

i have to say it was an amazing writing by Corrine Jackson. and im looking forward to her other works. this book definitely deserves a standing ovation..really..
