This book touched my heart. The words used in this story are beatiful and bring the story to life. This is a book for anyone who dreams.

I thought the book was very good. The characters were very realistic to me and real made me think. Towards the middle of the book I had to stop and read a paragraph over and over just to get the true meaning of the paragraph. I really think other people should pick up this book and read it. I also think that you will really like this book and can really relate to the book in many ways.
