This is a very good story book which is based on real life events. At the start it is a bit hard to read as they introduce a lot of characters with big names, once you get past the first couple chapters the story is very heart warming. Personally I found the story very good and it was a good break from the other genres that I read. I would recommend this book to a person that wants to get into the story type books. Later on in the story its hard to put this book down, it gets a little addicting.
