Omg I love this book! I got it on audiobook and it has the best narrators to compliment the amazing writing! except i wish that it were more sad... I thought it would be sadder because of the dead dad and pregnant/abused teen, but it wasn't horribly sad

Pretty Decent.

I thought this book was good. I wouldn't say it would be a favorite of mine, but still worth reading. I give it 3 and a half out of 5 stars.
