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.

  • Hi there, comment buddy!

    You have a super cute blog! Can’t wait to get to know you better throughout June!

    I’ve never heard of this book, but you’re definitely right – the cover is adorable. It sounds like it reads more like a middle grade book, rather than a YA? It almost sounds like some of the subjects might be a little too heavy for younger readers, especially if you were crying half-way through, lol. At any rate, it seems like it’ll have a lot of kids talking!
