My Thoughts  (Goodreads Synopsis)

 

First Impression:  I think the reason I waited so long to read this is because I knew it was going to make me cry…and it did…it so did…but it was so much more than that too.

 

I literally loved every character in this book, especially Kate and Gus.  Keller is not to bad either.  This was such a touching story.  With that being said, I can see how some people wouldn't like Kate, because of the kind of person that she is.  She is one of those people everyone gravitates towards, and everyone loves.  This could be construed as unbelievable or just too much.  They're people like this, whether it's for their innate goodness or for their insatiable badness, they do exist. 

 

For a story that's ultimately sad, it's also very uplifting.  Very well written with excellent narration.  With a lesson to never let an opportunity to be awesome pass you by.

Sex Factor:  Yes, but it's not overly explicit.
