by Alexandria Harris (Princeton): This was actually am extremely difficult book to get into after watching the movie. I think this is a wholesome story. The entire time you can feel yourself almost present as the author herself. She gave such good in depth description of the surroundings and I felt like I was actually in the book.. I couldn’t have asked for a better, more beautiful way to start and end. Mostly, people get the story confused. Who knows the truth? I think personally that this book shows animal cruelty, but not real abuse. It shows that to demonstrate what we have now, shall pass too and to get through the bad to get to the good.
