Opinion


I think this book is very hard to read. It is very complicated because things are written and aren't meant. The story is very good though. I found it interesting that some people would give there life is another life is lost. I learned that true love isn't always seen on the outside. You can't control someone's emotions even if you are family. I found this book interesting.
