Pros: There are many life problems were pointed out to be thought and re-though again and again. Such as Love, Forgiveness, Madness, Motherhood, but most of all: if the price to be honest in our criminal justice system is worth paying, and, if not, then what is the price to be dishonest? It is written in such convincing way that you feel that everyone can get into the catch of circumstances where mistakes are inevitable. The book written so well that (look at some negative reviews!) people easily assume that this is not a fiction, but real story. There was a lot of good thinking is happening (while crying) while you read the book; definitely a very good read.
Cons: two actually. One is that the world Ms. Hannah created is way too (unnecessarily) dark and realistic, so I was crying (and I am not that emotional) most of the reading.

Being entirely in the dark about what was going to happen, I happily kept reading and was not disappointed. The beginning of the book prepared the way for the remainder. The plot was unpredictable and satisfying. A love story that I enjoyed very much although I never read romances. This was my first time to read Hannah and it won't be the last. Reading about the Pacific Northwest was where the story was located and especially enjoyable. It was the author's writing style that made the story great. Another author could have written the same plot line but her writing gave it strength, sparkle,...
I did not like this book at all. The teenage love triangle was reminiscent of Twilight, which, although I read them all, is really not my cup of tea. It read like a PSA for drinking and driving. I guess that was the author's intention, but I thought it was lame. The characters were one-dimensional and boring. I had hoped for so much more.
