This is one of those books that is beautiful in a painful sort of way. I would definitely reread this, as it approaches grief in a way that feels so honest, and some of the perspectives are refreshingly different from other YA Contemporary stories centered around grief and loss.
The writing is excellent, and I adore the characters. There was even something that took me by surprise, because I was so buried in the story that I didn't even bother making predictions or assumptions while I read. I was just completely along for the ride on this, and I think that was the right way to experience it. Because, after all, grief itself is rather unpredictable.

this book... this book tore my heart out and I kind of want it back. the story was amazing, heart breaking and,over all just a great time. I've always loved books that can make me really feel something and this book did that. and the narrator did a good job of capturing the pain griffin was going through. I swear, sometimes it felt like he was actually crying in the booth. I highly recommend this to anyone and everyone

A story about love and trust and responsibilities that come with it. The character's dealing with loss is well written and believable. A lovely story.
