I was given a copy of this book by the author for me to read and review it. My review is honest, and not influenced by anyone. This book is easy to read. The characters are easy to relate to, and easy to picture. I enjoyed following their stories and learning about each of them. It wasn't too heavy, nor too light. One thing I was not impressed with was the ending. It was as if the author had run out of allowed words, so it ends rather abruptly. I believe it could have been spread out into another chapter or two and still kept the reader wanting more.
