Wow. Can I just say "Wow" and leave it at that?

This was wonderful. Sad, yes. Absolutely. Heartbreaking, even. There's pain and anger, loss and fear, suffering and assault and missed opportunities. Death, both accidental and through suicide. It's not an easy read.

But, God, it was also so beautiful. Full of friendship, love and, above all, hope.

To be honest, the beginning was a bit confusing. I didn't know what was happening and there were a lot of characters introduced, but once the book got going and I got into the swing of things, I couldn't put it down. The characters jump off the page, their pain is so real, and the descriptions are poetically written.

I highly, highly, recommend this book. It's one of the most unique reads I've ever read and will stay with me for a long time.
