This is a tearjerker for sure. It really pulls on your emotions and you will go through just about every one throughout the course of the novel. 

I loved how unique this novel was. It deals with deep emotions and loss but delves in to the theme of finding out new things about yourself  you never knew. 

Everyone has secrets and desires they don't even know. 

I truly enjoyed the writing style and pacing of the novel. The characters were very well developed, even Sophia's personality was very apparent from her diary and Erin's memories.
