Jasmine Rose - I won this one a while back and it’s just been sitting on my shelf ever since. I wanted a book that would make me cry about a week ago and I don’t know why I didn’t choose this one! I’ll definitely keep it in mind next time :]

April Books & Wine - I totally agree! I had zero interest in hockey before reading The Survival Kit (I mean besides those awesome Mighty Ducks Movies and Miracle), but now I’m all like, hmmm must investigate further into hockey.

AND YES! It was so cool seeing the meaning behind each item in Rose’s survival kit and how they truly did help her to cope.

Ginger @ GReads! - Very well-written review, my friend. So glad you got the same reaction from this book as I did. Yes, it’s tough & heart-breaking, but it’s also beautiful and glowing. I really wish more people would read it.
