really liked it

Read in October, 2009

I thought this book was more than the usual mindless read for entertainment, not that I mind those, because I don't. It's just... refreshing to read outside my usual interests.

This book had some really beautiful, eye opening philosophical moments. The prose were written in such a way, that they sent a POW to my brain that said, "wake up to reality, see underneath the surface of people and life."

I thought anyone could see themselves in Terra or Jacob, just replace the port-wine stain for any perceived flaw. This book, felt like I was reading my own life and journey.

Valerie Yeah, and I also thought the father's verbal abuse was eye opening as well.
