This book is nothing but sad but I love the ending, it makes me think if you have hope good things can happen no matter what. I kind of wish the author wrote a sequel.

I really enjoyed this book because it touches upon a subject that a lot of people don't know about. The Armenian Genocide is quite unknown to many people and this if a tragedy. This novel really opens your eyes to the atrocities commited to the Armenians. In addition, the author included elements of romance, friendship, and determination which makes the book appealing to not only females, but males as well. Everyone should read this book!!!
