it was amazing

This is one of those books you can't describe. You just tell people to read it for them to understand how amazing it is.

I have to give it to Oliver and her amazing writing skills that made me feel a roller coaster of emotions whilst reading this book. She made me hate Sam and her friends but also understood their characters.

Sam was a very realistic character with not just superficial and cliche flaws but real flaws like those in real people. She makes stupid choices, says stupid things, does stupid mistakes but in the end, how she tried and tried and tried to right those things mattered the most. Even it meant doing something she can't undo and sacrificing something important.

This book tore my heart out and made me cry real tears. This is beyond amazing.

Quotes Charlie Liked

Lauren Oliver
“I guess that's what saying good-bye is always like--like jumping off an edge. The worst part is making the choice to do it. Once you're in the air, there's nothing you can do but let go.”
