From the moment I started this story I knew I had discovered a story that was going to take me on a emotional roller-coaster ride. I went from moments of having my heart in my throat and blinking back tears, to blushing and smiling from ear to ear. I connected to this story almost immediately and at times it was really hard for me to read, not because of the writing, but because it brought up memories that I tucked away along time ago. I can honestly say that I have never read something that has effected me so deeply, and in the same token been so inspiring! This is a beautiful written story that has forever left a imprint on my heart, and taken me on a truly life changing literary journey!
