Has been my favorite book since middle school

This book is so beautiful. I really adore this book even now. The characters though sometimes a bit too much, it's the story. The 'Tenderness' that makes this my favorite book. The symbolism and the end of the story really make this book so much more than a YA book. I read this book over and over again. It never gets old. There's a movie too but the movie isn't as great as the book.

Cormier: Always a great read!

A dark, sad story written so well. I read this my freshman year and it's still a favorite.
