Hi Melanie!

It is one of those books that just sticks with you! I cried the last 50 pages...and then went back and re-read them. So good!! And such a quick read--despite the fact that it is incredibly depressing. I loved it.

Melanie | 487 comments I loved it too. A few people I know didn't like it because it was too bleak and depressing,and it stuck with them for awhile.

Better than Gathering Blue. But nothing close to the goodness of The Giver.
