I was a little worried, after picking this book up at the library, that I wasn't going to like this book. It has an over-used beginning with a plane crashing into the ocean, leaving no survivors. But I loved it. It's wonderful to read and I very much enjoyed it. The characters were realistic, the setting perfect. It wasn't a book I wanted to get through quickly- it's too sad- but it was perfect for the little chunks of reading time I get throughout the day. I'm glad I found it.
