This book was wonderful. Good story and a page-turne, the whole way through the book' So glad I read it.
This was by far the best Kristin Hannah book I have read! Close to the writing style of one of my favorite authors - Jodi Picoult. Supurb book!! Highly recommend.
A very powerful story about mistakes, and grief, and forgiveness. Never feels rushed, just moves through the characters' lives at their own pace. Good page turner.
Several of the characters in this novel did not ring true for me. The over protective mother, Jude Farraday, was especially so. In addition, she was unlikable. The most interesting and, hence, the most realistic was Lexi Baill. Her longing to belong, to have popular friends, to be able to go to the college of her choice are reminiscent of my own high school days. In addition, I was most uncomfortable about the choice to send Lexi to prison for the accident. Others may enjoy this read. I was disappointed.
I LOVED this book! It was inspiring, fun, happy, and heartbreaking. The story line was unique, and the characters were well-developed. I felt like I knew them personally. I was sad to reach the last page, even though the ending was perfect. This is a must-read!
I wanted to stay up all night to finish it!
This was my first time reading this author's work, and she's not my style. I don't think she has a convincing voice. I'm sure a Kristin Hannah fan would love the book though.
I read this book and didn't get what the big deal was. I thought there were a lot of cliches, stereotypes, and it was too predictable for my tastes. The author is a good wordsmith, that's true. I found the characters mostly uninteresting or annoying.
This is a great story of love,regret,sorrow,forgiveness. How many of us have needed to give one or all of these or receive one or all of these? It's a very good growth book. I can't repost it yet since my husband has to listen to this audio book also. You will laugh and cry so be prepared.
This book was about so many things including live, loss and forgiveness. I really enjoyed being taken along on this high schooler's journey through some very rough times.
