This was one of the best books i have read in along time, i read it about 6 years ago because my mom gave it to me. Af first i didn't like it but after i read it all the way through, it blew my mind. I was shocked, and it inspired me to look carefully before i fall in love with someone, not to be guarded, but open. i haven't fallen yet, but when i do it will be awesome. This book is great, i recommend it to anyone going through a hard time with their close friends or family because it lets you know that you are loved by those people even if they are having a problem. 5 STARS FOR ME. This was a Great read.
