Read from March 25 to April 03, 2010

I didn't actually read both side of the book, because it is written in English and Indonesian. I only read the English version.

At first, I was a bit bored with the story. It was too monotonous. Only about a little girl living with her filthy rich family, have a wonderful life but didn't get much attention from her mother.

But, by the end of the first chapter it gets more and more interesting. Zaira, the main character, starts to experience things like magic and her discover of writing. She started to write following her friend's, Ali, suggestion. He said that Zaira should write all her thoughts, so that her mind won't explode. Because she thinks too much. She has way too many problem solving in her head.
She grew up to be a great author of best selling books, a model and also a producer.

But when she loose her father. She felt as if it was the end of her life. She didn't feel love anymore, she didn't even feel anything at all. Even just the taste of food.
It was until one day when she met Jody. He was a friend of Zaira's best friend, Linn. They became so close and have a nice love story.
Jody has so many similarities with Zaira's father. She didn't realize that she always compared Jody with his father. It hurts Jody. So they were separated, even though they still really love each other.

One day, Zaira was really tired of all the condition in her life, tired of the problems, tired of keep losing love in her life. She then ask God to give her solutions. She then heard a voice inside her, telling her to stop everything else and start to listen. Listening to everything around her. She remains silent for months. This made Jody and her friends worried. People think she went crazy. Even her mother, who she thought never care enough, came to see her. And her grandma too, who really loved her came to see her.
Jody felt that this was all his fault, her silence and her insanity. But then when she at last talked to him, he knows what actually happened.

It is a really good and interesting story. The author wrote it nicely. I kind of admire the way she writes. I never actually read any of Zara Zettira's novel, but this one was really good.
