So my name is Rashika and I am weird. I read a lot (duh) and I watch a lot of TV. I also like to review. Check out my blog (where I co-blog with awesome people).
This beautiful book
isn’t as fun to read.
It treats your heart like a stone
and tosses it into a lake
where it skips and skips and skips.
It’s not easy to read
you might have figured that one out
but it’s worth every moment of pain it will put you through
it’s not a regular YA novel.
it is one that tells a story of immense loss
yet it also tells a story of familial love.
The author doesn’t cut back on the
But at the same time, she is honest
which is why this book is so heartbreaking
With its fierce characters
who continue to march on
You cannot help but fall in love
with not just with their innocent determination
You cheer for them
because they need to be cheered
Most of all though,
you hope everything will be all right.
If you are a lover of truth and
a lover of heartbreakingly real stories
I’d say give this one a shot
and let your heart skip skip skip
over a lake of your own tears
