Review by Sbg31012

This book is great at expressing feelings and such. I like how the girl liked a man different from her. I was kinda upset when I heard her parents did not approve. I believe that no matter the race, gender/sex, religion. Everyone should be treated with equality. Overall the story plot was great!

Love this book, already re-reading it

Review by RHTM2010

I though that this book was so good for showcasing different issues, and you wanted the main character to succeed to see what all of the answers are.
