    "One of the best books I've read in awhile!"

    I recommend this book to everyone. It has captured character essence in a way that seems surreal. I didn't want to bookmark, I wanted to know what happens next. I had found myself being able to relate to some of the characters and enjoyed the transition of this nada to somewhere Andrea can create herself. It's an uplifting story despite the odd descriptions- listen to it! You will not regret to be taken into this world.
