An Emotional Ride
I loved this story because it was refreshing to not have a love triangle. While there is romance, it isn't forced or instant. While I do enjoy reading the young adult genre, sometimes I feel like people fall in love too fast and it is unrealistic.
I liked the story because the author did not shy away from talking about deep and dark issues and feelings. There was some pretty deep content in here for a young adult novel, but it makes for a good and realistic plot.
To my knowledge I have not listened to any other performances by Devin Crowe.
There isn't one particular moment that stands out, but more the intense feelings of loss. As someone who is not a stranger to grief, I felt that this was an excellent portrayal of the overwhelming desperation someone can feel after losing loved ones.
The only reason I gave the story 4 stars was because sometimes the plot dragged a little for me. Overall it was excellent.
