What I thought about this book:
|I felt for Sayaka the whole way through. North does a good job with the writing, making Japan and the tsunami seem real, and making Sayaka a character with feelings. This book is one that I can pick up and read over and over again without being disappointed.|
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and cannot wait to get my hands on more books by Sienna North.
