it was amazing
Read in May, 2009

In the beginning this book seemed fairly ordinary, but as it developed I really began to enjoy the characters to the point where I missed them when I finished the book. The plot was slightly predictable, but there were moments which made me laugh out loud and others that put tears in my eyes. During the last third of the novel, I could not wait to find out what happened.

The message of the book was more complex than I expected and I appreciated the growth some of the main characters experienced. Without giving anything away, the ending made sense, with some parts more tightly closed than others without feeling contrived.
