Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The font size used for this book, as well as the lightness of the print, make it almost impossible to read. I purchased it for my daughter and even she was amazed at the small and difficult print. I will be returning it to the store and shopping for a different version.
This book is full of plot twists and looks into human perspective and the wrong turns it can have us take. A great read
