    I read a bunch of reviews of this book prior to reading it myself, and wasn t sure whether or not I would enjoy it.I was pleasantly surprised to find that I liked this book quite a bit, and here s why 1 The story was fascinating What would I have done in that situation It was fun to imagine myself as Norah, Caroline, David or Paul and determine if my actions would mirror theirs, or if I would have done things differently 2 The metaphors and imagery ...
