Linda Wiley - Great review. This one was hard for me to read too, for similar reasons, but it was a great read. Beautiful is really good too and I can’t wait to read Crazy.

VeganYANerds - Great review, Magan. I completely understand the need to read books like this and it must have been so difficult and painful for you as well.

Books like this and by Laurie Halse Anderson are such good reads for teenage girls and guys.

I will definitely pick a copy of this up.

Magan - Ashley, I haven’t read Fall for Anything yet. I can’t wait to do so! I’m really in love with CS’s writing. Check out Some Girls Are FOR SURE…I loved that one. 🙂

Ashley - I agree that this book could have used a little something more at the end. This was my second Summers book. I read her more recent novel, Fall for Anything first and it was AMAZING. I loved it so much. I still need to read Some Girls Are, but I’m highly looking forward to it. CS is pretty much awesome. 🙂
