Add to Goodreads
I fell in love with the cover! I loved the different friendships and how Krysten was able to capture each character. The way she expressed the grief was subtle. However, there were parts where I found the characters to be really immature, sometimes too immature and it made me want to yell. Overall, I thought the storyline was smooth and the characters were well written.
