My Review:
This is a very touching book. It definitely tugged at my heart. The main theme is where a person's worth comes from and it comes from who you are rather than what you do for a living. There is a major plot twist I did not expect. All I have to say is yikes. From the start to end the author had me. I highly recommend this book. :)
