I liked this book. I would have given it 3 1/2 stars if I could, but I'm generous & round up. :-) It took a bit to figure out where it was going, but I did like it in the end. THe last two chapters - Sadness & Acceptance were the very best & really made this book.
Brie was naive and imature, exactly what a 15/16yr old would be like. But once she figured things out, she grew up and did the right thing.
Interesting take on the afterlife.
