I read this book to fulfil the goal read a best seller from the year you finished high school (1997) i really enjoyed it descriptive sentinces. it was a book that made you picture the sence. it is full of vivid detail. spoiler alert: the ending made me cry, but still it was one of the best books i've read in a long time. it does start off a bit slow, but have patience. it is a great work of fiction.
