I sort of picked this book out not knowing what to expect. It starts out slow-ish but funny and slowly picks up speed, and the main character is really laid back and cool. Subtle hints are dropped about the direction of the story, so I started to deduce what the hints meant. let’s just say I cried a little…you would kind of have to have a black heart not to. If you liked The Fault in Our Stars, you will probably like this more. It just seemed realistic to me somehow and the main character’s strength was just phenomenal. Some characters really upset me, but Kate just brushed them off for the most part, where I wouldn’t have been so forgiving. I just really want to have the strength and outlook Kate had, actually. Gus and Keller were pretty great too. Miss Holden really did a great job and the familiarity you establish with the characters is superb.
Awesome work, Kim. Realistic, heartbreaking work.
