Wonderful book! From beginning to end I was drawn in. Jamie was just too cute in all his specialness - is that a word? Well, the whole book was a joy to read, although the Kleenex were nearby and in use, sniff. And Mattie - I so felt with him. And with how he at some point stood up for himself! Yes! And Ty was the best friend. Simon on the other hand really needed a good hard shake several times during the story. The end was just wonderful and fitting.
