AP Yes, brought me to tears and made me laugh out loud several times, obviously not at the same time.
This answer contains spoilers… (view spoiler)[It did make me cry but only because Tripp's mom is such a jerk and Lila's dad is also an idiot. I mean, you want your child to be happy, right? It was awful! WHAT IS WRONG WITH HAVING A HAPPY CHILD? Lila's dad is so...oblivious, I mean, come ON. CLEARLY she is not happy that you're basically forcing her to play cello. You, of all people, should be promoting the fact that she is attempting to broaden her horizons. And then in the end, when Tripp visited her in the hospital, it was so sweet I teared up just from how sweet Tripp was. I apologize for the rant :) (hide spoiler)]
