I bought this with some trepidation not having liked the previous Milan book I tried However I absolutely love her intelligent blog posts and commentary and a dollar didn t seem much to spend to say thank you I was so glad I took the small chanceThis novella was special partially because it has such an original plotline and partially because it s reasonably plausible historical fiction that speaks so strongly to concerns we have right now I m actually currently having an online conversation with people I went to junior high with that fits right in with the themes of bullying remorse trust and forgiveness explored here It s also deeply emotional and touching as a romance I loved itPS I just read this post by Milan about self publishing which makes me even happier that I shelled out the buck ETA Reread 11711
