I, like many others who have posted before me, loved this book so much more than the first. It took me two days to read both books. I read 50 pages of book one on the first night, the rest of that book and all of this one on day two. Interestingly, I loved the idea of the first book -- a girl watching these people that she loved, trying to figure out if she would live or die. But this book, with the boyfriend's point of view, spoke to my heart. I don't normally read books with a male protagonist -- maybe that is why I loved this one so much. Gayle Foreman has a way with words that make me feel like I am right there with the characters. You will not be disappointed.
