I loved this book to pieces. It was sweet and adorable, short yet filfulling. I loved the characters and their unique interaction, and found their dynamic to be perfect. The whole symbolic level of the story was beautiful, too, and natural. Though it almost felt a little too upfront about the gospel in the end—I almost wish it could have all stayed symbolic—it still felt natural and it was delivered strongly, tying together loose ends. A short, sweet, and super insightful read that I would recommend to anyone and everyone!
Rating: 5.0 / 5.0
Recommended to: Anyone and everyone!
