Wow--I was pleasantly surprised by this. Even though it's a novel, I started thinking about my own life in relation to what the main character was experiencing and feeling.

This book has been on my reading list for quite some time and I never got to it and almost removed it completely from my reading list. I am so glad that this time I opened it up and began reading because after the turning the first few pages it started wrapping itself around my soul and each time I put it down it stayed with me and I am sure now that I have finished this one will stay with me for a long time. So powerful, so beautiful written.

This is a great reader from start to finish for any adult or teen. It deals with being accountable to others and to yourself, making choices to do what you say you are going to do rather than just saying and not doing and letting people down. It also deals with persevering, and facing what can sometimes be the most difficult thing to deal with... YOU! I recommend reading this book and asking yourself some of the questions the main character is asked.

“In life, the path of least resistance is always silence. If you don’t express your feelings and thoughts to others, you don’t have to deal with their reactions to it. You don’t have to feel vulnerable. You don’t risk rejection. But I’ll tell you what: the path of least resistance leads exactly where that ride leads to.” He pointed again to the carts looping around the track. “Nowhere.”
