"This book is the definition of the butterfly effect. It gives perspective into how our actions affect others and the future."
"I started reading this book but quickly got bored of it. Should I just keep reading? I wanted a book that would make me cry, so I gave up and started reading All The Bright Places (which seems to be more interested). What are your thoughts on both books? NO SPOILERS please! "
