It is a sad and emotional read for me. Both the main characters have their own emotional struggle within them and being a reader, their emotion tends to get to me. It saddened me to read about them being so young are subjected to so much sadness and heartache. It is a story about relationship between family and friends, loss of loved ones, grief and eventually emotional recovery.
