  1. I didn’t know what to think about this book. I read it in one day, then ended the book pretty much saying “huh.” I had no emotions toward it, no thoughts-it was almost as if the book was just…there. If that even makes sense.

  2. i think the book is so AMAZING!!!!!!! I wish they had another book based on the people lives in this book. once i read the book i couldnt put it down i even read it over the weekend & i’ve never done that before so you know the book was good. I strongly recommend everyone read this book
