Loved it! This book is super popular with my high school students, so I thought I'd check it out. Fell in love the first 5 minutes. Cried a lot throughout, with no regrets.

I like that the 3 stories are 3 different narrators. It was fun that when each story was at an exciting part, the next chapter was about a different character. Great historical fiction book for 6th grade and up. Loved it!
