Sweet and endearing. A beautiful story, never preachy, with great lessons of real life.

Read this book for a class, and I could talk for an hour or more about this book and all it has to say. It made me feel so many feelings and it's definitely a heavy one that doesn't tread lightly and isn't afraid to discuss heavy-hitting topics.
