Wow. I really enjoyed this book. I loved the style of writing and the fact that the book jumped from the three points of views. In the end I was torn because it was so unexpected and I almost wanted all three of the main character's lives to converge and face each other...but it didn't end that way! And honestly I decided that I'm ok with that. The moment when Jay breaks down was so powerful for me, partly I think because I didn't see it coming. I love that Angela Johnson doesn't spell everything out for the reader when it comes to her characters feelings and emotions. It was so beautifully told and I loved the subtle yet powerful way that everything was presented. It felt very real to me. I loved it.
