I have wanted to tea d this book since it first came out but never felt the real call to read it.
So when I saw it at the library a few weeks ago I thought what the hell I have nothing to lose at this point.
And I have to say this is one of the best books I have ever read. no its not a great classic but it really touches the heart. and for me the story of these two girls and how strong they are moves me. I just feel in love with both of them. yes at points it was hard to read because I did not always like what was going on ( I really love the big hollywood ends - so sue me). but the words and how they talk about music moved me so much. I want to go through the book again just to listen to all the music they talk about.
At times I felt like I could reach out and touch them. I could feel what they felt in my heart and soul. very few YA books really do that. something else I loved about this book was that it was not about another love sick teenager ( I know we all love them but it can get a little old). the love in this book was a different kind of true love.
there are so many things we can learn from this. That we are all going through are own hell but we have to find away to work through it. I think this is a book that anyone will learn something from. even if you don't like this kind of book. it is one that will move you. so if you can really read it. it is something that you should try. I my self can not wait to reread it- which means its very good because I never reread.
