's review

it was amazing

** spoiler alert ** I was warned by many when I started this book that I will require tissues to cope with the heartache it's about to give me. Yet, I wasn't quite ready to be so broken by the end of it. I sobbed for a good hour, no lie.

What I particularly liked (but also absolutely hated at the same time because it's just so unfair!!), is how true Gayle stayed to real life. There was no "sugarcoating"; no unbelievable happy endings because he simply could have just re-written Kerry's story to make it all pink and fluffy. But he didn't. I fell in love with all the characters and when I learned we are about to lose Kerry, and so soon after Noah and her reconnected I felt CRUSHED! My heart bled for Kian and the rest of the family.

Half a World Away is honest, raw and moving story about finding one's self, about family and about unconditional love and sacrifice.

It was everything I expected and more.
