Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inspiring and Surprising! I was reading this book as a novel study in class...our teacher assigned us to finish the book from chapter 18 as we had read the rest in class. To be blunt, the first 18 chapters were boring and crappy. They were something I felt forced to read, then as I was reading chapters 18 and up, I couldn't stop crying. The emotional climax in the end of the book is phenomenal and mind-blowing. As I have a younger sister, who is the age of Katya, I felt am emotional connection and love towards her, even if she was fictional. I rate this book 5 stars simply because the last 6 chapters are sensational and absolutely extraordinary...recommend this book!!!!
