This book is absolutely amazing, from the beautiful cover, to the outstanding messages it has inside. This book made me long for a romance like this. Leila Howard knows what she is doing. This is her first novel though, so it is very impressive. The book is well written, beautifully done, and everyone needs to read this amazing peic eof literature.
The plot of this book is absolutely superb! There are small twists and suprises that make it that much more lovable. It is an amazing romance novel, along with a sort of coming of age story. You get to follow this girl, as she learns who she is, and what she really wants from life.
My absolute favorite thing about this book are the characters in it. It is a character driven book most of the time, but it is so well done, that you would not mind that fact at all. It is so easy to fall i n and out of love with every single character.And you really feel and care for every single one of them. This book had me crying even on the 40th page. That is how attached you get to the characters, and how quickly as well.
In all, this book is amazing, and heart-touching, and beautiful. Leila Howard is an absolute genius, and many, many more people need to read this book. It is an amazing story that warms me up just thinking about it. It is now one of my favorites and will be for a very long time.
