Tragic! I started this book expecting an inspiring, a bit of a happy story but I TOTALLY wasn't expecting that. As much as it was a thought-provoking story and a stellar book but why so sad :( This book lost a star in my rating because of the storyline, of how sad and complicated this book was. I was glued to the pages though and I finished it in one day but it was so sad yet so fantastic and the ending was actually pretty good and suprisingly satisfying.
It was some sort of an emotional punch, like seeing someone suffering, their lives crumbling down like some pieces of bread or having their hearts broken or torn because of.... decisions which were before just choices. To be quite honest this book can get you talking a lot but to cut it short, it was compelling.
Overall, I couldn't say that I enjoyed this book as much as I can say that ached a lot during my little trip reading it. But Katie Dale is a GENIUS! She managed to put together this really intricate, in-depth story of people's lives - not aliens people! A thought-provoking, poignant, heart-rending story that will keep you glued to the pages, not because you are expecting or even waiting for a happy ending or just a happy moment but because you want to keep up with this distressing and woeful story about.... two girls. Highly recommended!
