One of the best books I've ever read in my life!:)

I didn't expect much from this book but wow I must say it was fabulous!

So much better than what I had expected. Made me laugh and cry, sometimes at the same time. Kinda saw the plot twist - if you call it that - but enjoyed it nevertheless.

All I have to say is: wow. This book has a unique twist to the idea of life and death....and it pulls on a few of your heartstrings at the same time. I'm a tough cookie....I never cry while reading books, but I'm ashamed and in awe to say that I teared up while reading this. A must-read!!! :)

What would it be like to literally have your heartbroken? Apparently it would suck. This book is all over the place, which I enjoyed. It wasn't necessarily disjointed, there was just a lot of story, and the order is not chronological. Very touching, funny, sad. To see how the death of a child causes a family to spiral out of control, from the child's point of view, was quite crazy. Jess Rothenberg's take on where we go once we die, is quite fascinating as well. All in all, great love story.

This book is AMAZING. I have no words to actually describe this book. My heart ripped apart so many times. It's so beautifully written and every chapter opens up a new surprise. I guess, this book teaches you not to so easily jump to conclusions about someone and to maybe reflect and understand that sometimes there's always a reason. Can't wait to read future books written by Jess Rothenberg.

The book takes a fascinating and unique approach to the classic love story by following the main character, Brie, into the afterlife when she literally dies of a broken heart.
