Review: I'm mean. I know. But I'll clarify, I didn't give it one star for the writing. The writing is pretty fantastic. Vivid imagery, incredible story and detail. Good pacing. Characters I really got involved with. This book was just too emotional for me. Too hard. It involved bad things happening to kids and babies and that's not a place that I handle well. It upset me and I couldn't stop thinking about it. Good, I guess. It means the books was really involved. I think the story is an incredible statement about the power of choice and it's beautifully written. I'm just still trying to decide if I'm going to read the sequels...
