TISSUES.....don't start this book without them!
This isn't a fairy tale story it's real. The emotions that this book brought out in me were visceral and messy...they were real. I loved that this look at how Robert and Rachel came together wasn't sugar-coated, it was honest and told with more emotion in 50 pages than some full length novels that I have read. The quote in the book from J.D. Salinger's Catcher in the Rye, "Turn your scars into stars", was perfect for this story.
RATING: 5 Chocolate Dipped Strawberries. this book was given to us by the author. Many thanks!
