I read this book by request from my best friend. It's her favourite book and I owe this experience to her.
Wow. This was a really powerful book. The poetry within the book was stunning and meaningful. Those who know me, know I love poetry within a book.
I was also blown away by the amount of important and recurring symbols in the story, and how they were represented. My favourite part of the book, other than the poem about the ocean, is the poem entitled "Pink Balloon" and every other pink balloon related scene afterwards. The last one made me cry. (When you get there you will know)
Will and Lake are incredibly strong people who are so similar in regards to their pain and situations. They complement each other perfectly.
I cannot wait to read what Hoover has in store in Point of Retreat.
