I can't stand that the paragraphs aren't separated somehow when it goes to another character. It is very confusing, and usually takes me a little bit to realize what is going on.


Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments I agree that the book is a little "preachy" but because I am Christian I am enjoying the message that I'm gleaning from it.
