I loved this book. It is really a book about hope, written with plenty of poetic charm. This short story made me feel like I was in a dream, learning significant lessons along the way. With lyrical storytelling, this book brings you on a wistful journey filled with pain and darkness, but that finally leads to great redemption. If you like books that are thought provoking and loaded with hidden meaning, this is an excellent choice!

Very well written

I love the concept for this book and was really enthralled to pick it up. It was a fun read, full of poetry and symbolism. However, most of the secondary characters come across as a bit flat and Hoffman moves through the plot so quickly, I feel like I missed out on a lot of potentially juicy details.

This is a short book and a very quick read. It is about the transformation of a young lady after a fire destroys her family and the town she lives in. She finds a way to survive and eventually make a new life for herself. I enjoyed the poetic style of this book.

I read this years ago and I still remember how it went. Really vivid and touching. I really wish there were more characters like Green in teen literature.

Loved the idea of the fog between dream and reality.
