      A tough, poinient, heart wrenching story. Unusual topic, point of view, and lead character, but amazingly touching story, very cleverly written. Honestly I wasn't sure I wanted or could start this story, didn't know if my heart would make it in one piece, and it didn't, but wow, reviewing through tears, exhausted from the rollercoaster journey, I'm so so pleased I made it to the end, try it, have tissues near by, enjoy it, learn something, and be humbled.
