's review

it was amazing
bookshelves: young-adult

Despite having spotted this in a bookstore years ago, I almost gave it up a couple chapters in as I anticipated the story would be a sad one. I'm glad I persevered. This isn't a sad story, but strong, a new take on coming of age. It tells of peace and war, brokenness and health, relationships with family, people who become dear, and the world. In the end, my only complaint was that I couldn't tell when and where it was set. But then, I recognized, that very fact makes the story even more universal: peace and war, brokenness and health, occur at all times everywhere.

"Because I am exactly where I should be, doing exactly what I should be doing. That is peace." (102)
