No matter how many times I read this book, I still hope for the ending to change. I know it never will, I know what happens is inevitable and will leave me in tears, but I still read with hope.
This book is haunting. Once you read it, it will stay with you forever. A hot summer day will make you think of it. Seeing swans will make you think of it. Seeing kids trying to grow up too fast will make you think of it. A wild storm will make you think of it. You'll never get away from this book, you'll never stop thinking about.So that's what I did. I cried myself a story. And this is it.
This book is violent and real and heartbreaking and shocking and moving. And it is easily one of my favourite books of all time. It is a roller-coaster ride which ends in despair, despite knowing what's coming.
