The black sheep's review
I feel like the black sheep... but I didn't find this book as great as the other people who reviewed it did...
I gave it three stars nonetheless because it features a fluid plot, easy and pleasant, however I just can't get into the storyline, even if Mira Sorvino did a fantastic job by narrating it(especially in the parts when she cried).
This book with an obvious cutsy and superficial plot was trying so hard to earn depth and emotion but it just didn't make it into my heart...
At first I was mad that I had accidentally purchased the abridged version but in the end i was glad because I don't think I would have been able to enjoy much more of it.
A piece of advice: looking for a light and fresh reading? Go for "The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants" or even better, if you prefer something deeper "The Secret Life of Bees" <--- a very spiritual book that still has me thinking about life and destiny...
