I'm not upset that this book was different. It went far beyond my expectations, and I loved the journey Jenna took. I like when characters find themselves, and I love how strong and independent Jenna was. She went through hard times, made some tough decisions, and I admired her for the way she handled things.
The messages in the book were remarkable as well. This book says that you can't fix everything. It says that being emotional isn't the same as being weak.
I did have some problems with being thrown into the past so suddenly, although I see how this could be beneficial to the story as well - it allowed readers to feel the way Jenna did at the (sometimes) sudden memories.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book. It was one I couldn't put down, that kept me wanting more of the characters and their story. It was beautifully written and weaved together so nicely, and it's definitely one I would recommend.
