My Thoughts: (added 3/29/14) I was not completely honest if my first review. I said I really like this book, but I did not mention that I almost really hated the book too. This novel makes you concern your thoughts on a very serious issue, which I will not say, but I still have not completely sorted out my feelings on the subject. Also, about the different points of view, there was a person didn’t get a say from their side, which kind of makes me mad. (/add)
As you can tell, I really liked this book. It is a sweet story. I really like the characters. Some parts were in the point of view of different people. It also makes you become aware of the struggles of people who are paralyzed. I am not going to say too much about the story line, because that would spoil everything and ruin the whole experience!
The main narrator, Susan Lyons, did a really good job. She gave each character life. The parts that were in the different points of view were voiced by other people. I like most of them.
