Ratings & Reviews

It took me a total or 5 hours to manage to finish this novel (even though the content isn't that lengthy) because I simply couldn't manage to bring myself to read till the end... because before the start we know how it ends... but when that end draws near, you don't want it to. I became... afraid. In these few hours, this novel managed to do so... so much... to me... and for me... It is very difficult for me to explain in words, the impact this book has left on me. It will forever have a place in my heart. It managed to do to me in a few hours' reading time, what entire 15 novel series haven't managed to do.
Sucker Punch to the Heart
Great story-characters, plot, pace, settings, all were great. The only issue I had with this was that the story was written in a passive tone that made me feel as though things were dragging out, but I pushed on and I got that ending. It really hit me hard then. There's a lot to learn about the two main characters (don't focus on any of the others 'cuz you're not going to see them as often anyway). You gain a lot from them and where they ended up by the ending, and while bittersweet, this is a good book to keep in mind about hardships and coping.
This is a recommended series for those who want grit in their highschool slice-of-life fiction. Also-for older teens and up because of some jokes referencing to...."not self-help".
A Truly Wonderful Tearjerker
If you like snappy dialogue with your tragedy, then this is a great novel. I can't express how much this story moved me. The set-up throughout the book paid off in the end in an unexpected way that drives home the point of the novel. Highly recommended!
