1.5 maybe if I'm feeling generous
That was just wildly disappointing

This was one of my most highly anticipated releases of last year, and I am simply crushed to say that I did not enjoy it, not even in the slightest. The synopsis promises a road trip around Europe between the girlfriend, best friend and cousins of a boy who died of a heart condition, age eighteen...

I'm not angry enough to rage. I'm just disappointed at how - well - disappointing this is. Too many points of view to actually develop the characters, who never become properly shaded in. Too much bouncing from stereotype to stereotype. The plot is cookie-cutter; I've literally read this story be...

This book has such a great premise, that unfortunately just didn't connect with me. I really wanted to like this book too.

I understand what this book was trying to do, but it didn't actually accomplish that. Instead you follow a group of bickering kids around Europe and frankly I wasn't really into it.

I would have given this book a 3 overall, but I really enjoyed the ending so that bumped it up to a 4 in my books! A story about grief, friendship, family, travel and love!

I've wanted to read this book for a while. When I opened it, it was really good. The plot made sense, I was intrigued by the characters, I liked it. But I just wasn't in my right mind so maybe I'll try to read it again some other time.

Jesse Serrano is just an average boy who has a liking in playing the game "Would you rather." It's notice at a young age that Jesse has a hole in his heart and does not have that long to live. He's written this journal of his thoughts and feelings and gives it to his cousin Cal. Months have past...

Grief is a well-worn path in YA, and The Land of 10,000 Madonnas travels it ably. Jesse knew that the hole in his heart would cut his life short and in a final wish, he gives a group made up of his cousins, his best friend, and his girlfriend a quest that involves a trip to Europe and a seemingly...

I loved Hattemer's writing. It is gorgeous. Her words flow together, and you get wrapped up in them, and don't realize how much time has gone by. The way she writes emotion is amazing. You can feel the words as you read them...
