Read this book:
It's so freaking good, it almost blew my mind. In fact, I've already RE-read it. True story.
It will go on my list of all-time favorite books. Right up there with Silas Marner and freaking Poor Gertie, both of which changed my life when I was a kid. This book is about love, redemption, forgiveness, and acceptance. It is written with honestly--sometimes so much so that it's ugly, and complete devotion to the characters and their message.
I loved it. I loved it. I loved it.
If this book doesn't become a bestseller, I'll die. Seriously. It's just that beautiful.
Get it now. It's worth every penny, and then some.
