I am an adult who loves a good YA read---but really I just love an engrossing story. If it pulls me in and I can't stop reading-I'm happy!
I don’t know if I can compose something that accurately conveys my thoughts about this novel. I don't think there are accurate words.
Ultimately I thought this book was an emotional experience. I was moved at different points to tears---and yet I was comforted. And I saw life and more importantly death a little bit differently when the book was done.
Allan Corduner’s performance was nothing short of impressive---and I can not imagine experiencing this book without his voice. I think he elevated an already superb story…
This is nothing short of brilliant!

I think I probably would have given this book five stars if I were a chick. It was an enjoyable listen with characters that came to life with the good narration. If I had one criticism is that it leaves you hanging as Francie heads off to college. I almost wanted the story to be a retrospective with Francie opening up her time capsule 50 years later and giving a brief synopsis of what had happened with the rest of her life. Great characters, great dialogue and a totally believable storyline. Highly recommended.
