***SPOILS THE END*** I gave this book four stars even though I only want to give it one. I didn't like this book at all but it wouldn't be fair to the author to get a bad review because the book wasn't what I was expecting. I realized with the title and subject matter it wasn't going to be a peaches and cream kind of book. The book was everything everyone else previous to me mentioned but I read to escape my problems and this book quite frankly depressed the s*** out of me. I like the happily ever after. I don't want to discourage people from reading this book because this is such a big problem with our children (and society) today and we can't keep our blinders on about it. Very well written book. The author evoked every feeling she sought from the reader and that is a testament of great writing.
