A truly magical, beautiful, and brave story, this story captured my heart from the begging to the very last page this is my favorite book of all time. John Irving casted a love spell when he wrote this book, it is a heart warming story about a boy who believes in his destiny and works hard to make sure he achieves it. I believe everyone should read this story because it is so spectacular. At the end of the book I was in tears, I felt attached to this beautiful character as though he were a part of my family, this is how amazing this story truly is, it is a book that will stay with you forever.
