My rating: 4 of 5 stars
3.5/5 stars if I had the option.
I struggled initially to really get into this one, but it swept me up fairly quickly. Following the various lives from youth into adulthood, you feel as though you really get to know them, and you care for them, and you desperately want the best for them.
I liked it, but I didn’t love it, and that’s okay. I actually found out about this book because Amazon Prime had a pilot for a show based on the book and I had it in my watch list to give it a shot. Before I got the chance to Amazon removed it after deciding not to go ahead with the show. Disappointing, I think it could’ve made a great show.
