“Real friends are the ones you can count on no matter what.
The ones who go into the forest to find you and bring you home.
And real friends never have to tell you that they’re your friends.”
I don’t…. I don’t know how i feel. I’m trying to figure out why this got so many great reviews. it took me forever to warm up to Emily, the main character. I thought she was super bland for the majority of the story. But i liked the other characters. Frank was fantastic. I loved every scene with him in it. I love how the relationships in the story progressed and developed. I also didn’t like Sloane. like i get why she didn’t talk to Emily after she left but at the same time, REALLY?
I also thought the book was slightly boring within the first 100 pages before things started happening within the story and the list. it’s weird though… like i was bored reading it but then I’d look and i had already read 70+ pages!? So I’m very conflicted on how i feel. I honestly hated how things were handled and settled at the end.
overall, it was a cute story. it has a great meaning to it. the thing I took from the story was to live life to the fullest. don’t follow behind someone else. live for yourself.
