Review: Reading the synopsis for this might make it sound like it came straight out of a Lifetime movie. In some ways, it kind of is. And somehow, it seems to work.
Personally, I liked the story. I also liked the characters. The writing was fine and tolerable. However, it was a bit on the cliche side of things. Also, there were many times the book felt like it was just dragging on and on with random philosophical ponderings and what not. Despite this, I do think it's worth reading.
Overall, the plot itself and the story is enough to hold and keep your attention. Thought-provoking, inspirational, touching.. just not enough to make me read this again, or get a copy of it. It also wouldn't be on the top of my list of books I would recommend.
