This was a good book about a girl's struggle with tragedy in her life. There was a really heavy emphasis on Mormon religion, which for me just made the story more authentic and interesting, but it might put some people off. Overall, I enjoyed it.
A very good book, with a powerful story. It fell a little flat at a few points, and so wasn't perfect, but was still well worth reading. It's a good powerful story about grief, tragedy, and forgiveness. Veronica is a believable narrator, and lets you feel her pain as she tells her story. Definitely worth the time spent reading it.
