I read this in the first day of the Wicked Winter Read A Thon. I took a few breaks, and I cried, and I laughed, and I remembered my little brother. This is a wonderful story of grief and how it takes you places you don't think you are ever going to need to go. It portrays a heaven as I have often imagined however you need it to be. Yes you will see those you love, yes you will be able to watch the world below, and yes, there will be many things you wish you could change, but you can't.

I enjoyed this story in an odd, made me cry, kind of way.
