  1. *sniffle* This book almost made me cry at some points. Very well written, in my opinion. The characters seemed mor real than other realistic fiction books I’ve read this year.

  2. THIS BOOK MADE ME CRY and it is HARD for a book to make me cry! Of the realistic fiction books I read this year, this was my favorite. Audrey is a very well fleshed out character, and LaFleur’s clear writing makes you feel like you are the one who lost family…

  3. This book was really sweet, sad, happy, and hopeful all at the same time. The author conveyed all those emotions across at the same time which takes a lot of skill. I think it might have the potential to be an honor.

  4. This book was sad, but very well-written. It was a great reminder of how important our families are, and was filled with emotion. I felt like I was inside Aubrey’s head, feeling what she felt. The character development was also great! There was a huge difference between the Aubrey in the beginning and the Aubrey in the end. Same with her mother.
