This book was amazing. It was sad at some parts and romantic at others and blended well together made me feel like the people were alive.

Sure, this might seem like one of those typical guy saves the day novel and as a pessimist, I really don't think we all can meet a friend who would be that willing to help us out if things like that ever happen to us. However, it's definitely a good and emotional book and definitely worthwhile to read. Willow's problems and internal conflicts make our daily hassles and small fights with parents seem lucky because how normal they are. Willow's struggle against herself makes me sad. She is a good kid, but life just doesn't have it easy on her. We may not experience the traumas that Willow had gone through, but it makes me feel connected somehow.

this book has a very strong message, it was very well written and it has a good ending.............Guy is so sweet and Willow is just a troubled teen who learns to cope with her problems and face the truth. good book for any teen and shows just how easy some of us have it
