At first when I started reading this book I thought it was boring, but as soon as I got up to about chapter 3 I was hooked and It was really interesting and exciting. I love Andi and the other characters, and the way its written makes you feel like your actually there experiencing all the pain and loss and happiness and adventure. This is definitly one of my favourite books this year.

This book was amazing! I just started it about 9:00 pm Valentines Day, and just finished it at 4:00 pm today. I have been reading it non-stop today. It's just so... well, amazing! I cannot say that I've had to experience the things Andi has, but I know all too well what it's like to rely upon music. I don't know where I would be without it. There is no time during the days of my life that I don't have my IPod on me. I practically LIVE on it!
I have a friend (who I have a MAJOR crush on by the way!!) that looks the exact way that Andi describes Virgil. Except, HIS name is Dandre.
I have never been to Paris (never mind out of the U.S), but it sounds like where Andi went was BEAUTIFUL!
Over all: it was a very inspirational, thrilling, love-struck, semi-creepy book that I believe (and this is just MY opinion) should be made into a movie. I know that I would see it. Five star rating!!
