***3.5 ‘It’s All About the Journey’ Stars***

I’ve waffled over this one a bit because while I really did enjoy the journey that Anna went on, it didn’t give me the emotional gut punch I was expecting. It’s not a bad thing in anyway, in fact I’m quite happy with how the every thing in the book played out and the tone of it, I just feel like there should have been a little more to it. Since this is a debate that I don’t see winning any time soon I’m simply going to go with it being a “It’s not you, it’s me’ sitch and call it a day because it was a good story in the end.

Anna was an interesting character in that I felt she was an amalgamation of your typical 17 year old. She was head strong and insecure in equal measure. It wasn’t easy for her to open up about her feelings, but when she did it was like a tsunami coming at you. She was selfish and generous and couldn’t always see past her own nose, but she was at heart, a good person and I enjoyed watching her take on the list, with the help of Cameron, and how her perception of the world shifted just a little.

As I said, I liked the tone of the story and it’s because the author could have most definitely made it more melancholy and focused on what Anna and her family lost, but instead she made it more of a celebration of Storm’s life and I found that to be quite refreshing. This isn’t to say that there weren’t moments where you felt the pain of losing a child, sister and friend, because there were, but it wasn’t the focus, healing from the loss was. I liked how Cameron and Anna’s relationship evolved and while the twist in the story didn’t surprise me all that much, it still worked for me in the end.

I chose this book for a book report and it was such a good decision. The author is so descriptive with everything she wrote and the storyline was great. I encourage teenagers and young adults to read this book.
