After taking a couple weeks to think about it and completely dry my eyes, I can say that this book is absolutely beautiful I loved everything about it. The emotions I felt as I went through Lennie's story and her pain were so real. I loved every single character, especially Lennie's grandmother and uncle, I adore their quirkiness. It's awesome how Jandy Nelson made each of these characters come alive, even Bailey who is only present in Lennie's memories and notes feels like a flesh and blood person. 4.5 stars.
