in the terms of the writing style i liked how everything was always described in great detail and i felt like i could see it playing in my head. something that i DIDN'T like about the writing style was how foreshadowing was often used which made me know what was coming a lot of the time.
I loved this story because it was a real story that was guided through genuine characters and it was really just a heartfelt STORY LINE. something i DIDN'T like about the story is how much i cried, but the ending was worth it.
the theme of this story i believe is that everybody deserves a chance and nobody should be judged by their front they may put up. over time all things will work itself out and you have to put trust in that.
this book kept me very intrigued and I would always wonder if things would ever work out. i would recommend this book to people who are looking for a good plot and willing to shed a couple tears.
