it was amazing
bookshelves: 2013, library-read, books-that-make-me-clever, genre-fiction

Though it took a little while to get started it managed to completely suck me in and had me both laughing and crying. My only regret with this book is that it comes to an end. It holds some of the best written most fleshed out characters I've ever "met" and it and they are so real, it hurts.
