4 out of 5 stars
This story is so sweet! It’s like a roller coaster of emotions. I was really hoping it ‘t turn out look TFIOS, but of course it did. It did start off kind of slow, but I got really addicted to it! I was crying halfway through the book. I like the cover a lot, it’s really pretty. This is definitely like TFIOS, but for middle grade readers.This story has a lot of important topic in it, drugs, adoption, animal cruelty, runaways, and cancer. It really makes you think about your life more. Penguin and I are so excited for the release date, June 9.
