Why I picked it up: This is book has changed the lives of many people and the way we look at the world. I picked up this book because it makes me realize how people, who go through this tragedy, are very strong.
Why I kept reading it: I kept reading this book because the author does a great job teaching us how she went through a terrible experience, and she continued to go on with this.
Who would I give it to next: I would suggest books to people that are very serious in reading books that are sentimental.
