Before reading the book I knew it was going to be a sad book that would make me cry and it did just that.

From the very first page with Caitlin finding out about Ingrid’s death the story drew me in. You get to see Caitlin’s grieving and her journey to pull herself out of the dark place she was in after Ingrid’s death.

You get to know so much more of Ingrid through her journal entries. Not only do you find out Caitlin’s reaction but you can see what Ingrid was going through and feel her pain as well. It just made the character come alive.

Another thing I want to mention is the cover. There’s nothing wrong with it and I really like it but after reading the book and knowing what the ending is, I just thought that the picture that Caitlin took of herself at the end would have made a great cover for the book as well.
