  • Breathtaking

    By Sophie speed
    This is easily my favourite book ever! It made me happy and sad, and towards the end I was crying. Whenever I wasn’t reading it, it made me feel sad and I couldn’t wait until the next time I could pick this book back up again. It took me less than a day to complete, but it was amazing! It could DEFINATLY take you weeks to complete, but I couldn’t stop reading, so I unfortunately, finished it 😂. I would recommend to 14+ but I’ve recommended it to 11 year olds. Overall if you are debating whether or not to get this book, DO IT, AND DON’T THINK TWICE!

    Read this book in about two days - I couldn't put it down. It had my heart soaring, my eyes watering and at some points I couldn't even look away! A wonderful, insightful, delicate read.
