I am a grown ass woman so I do not throw out the OMG very often. Actually not at all but there you have it… OMFG!! I have no idea as to how to go about this review. Let me collect myself and I’ll get back to you! And yes this is absolutely going on my favorite shelf!
I have had a moment to think about what to say and there just aren’t any words that I can come up with that do this book justice. To me it was real and deep, something that the young adult genre lacks a lot of. E. Lockhart has a beautiful, mesmorizing way with words. There were several passages through out this book that I highlighted not only because I wanted to share them with you but because I wanted to be able to look back and read them again and again and expierence the raw emotion that this book brought out of me. I decided that I will not share any of my favorite quotes or passages in this review like I had first intended. I am going to ask that you read this piece of art work for yourself because that is exactly what it is… ART! This is not a book you want to hear all about from someone else. This my fellow readers is a book you want to expierence all your own. And from my own personal experience, let me warn you, get ready for the tears!!
