A good friend of mine recommended that I read this book. It's a huge book--looks like an encyclopedia--but I stuck with it the whole way through. This book's main theme is depressing--death and trying to cope with it (which ultimately leads to stronger family bonds and the closeness of sisters). Each story starts with when each girl turns sixteen. However enchanting the idea was, the whirlwind romances of each girl do not contain the depth of a typical novel (due to these time jumps). I didn't really enjoy this book, and in the end, feel like it was a waste of my time.
