I delayed reading this book for a long while, maybe because of the hype, maybe because of the subject matter. It was worth the wait. There was very little I didn't like about this book and very much that I did. I thought it was beautifully written and found it almost impossible to put down, as I was absorbed completely. I'm not a crier, but there were parts of this book that brought tears to my eyes and I needed to take a few moments to pause, before returning to the story. There were many parts that made me smile and nod along in agreement. I won't detail what the story is about, as I think anyone who approaches this book knows which subject matter is being dealt with, but still it wasn't quite what I was expecting. I was apprehensive that I wouldn't like the story and that after such rave reviews I would find it lacking...but it was much more than I hoped.
