When I opened Mom's letter, I would always read the P.S. first. I just couldn't wait to discover what revelations, humor, observations, admonitions, and encouragement she wanted to share with me."

I think it isn't the best book I've ever read because firsty, the book was absolutely amazing but I think I was dissapointed by the ending. The characters are always the same and I think it's quite boring. I think it was too slowly.
