This was a very complex book, which I liked a lot. It had so many plot twists and tied together at the end. It had love and heartbreak, and was also very funny.

This book grabs your attention right from the start with a shock. It is very sad but also humerus at times. One paragraph you'll be laughing and the next you'll be crying. It also has a really good message.

I loved this book a lot. I loved it because it was a break from dystopian books. It also was very serious, sad and inspiring at sometimes, then it could also be happy, light- hearted, and very funny. It grabbed my attention right from the start and I could barely put it down.
