This novel was my absolute favorite and I really enjoyed reading it. It had taught me that even if you are afraid there is always hope. The people around you are there to help you. It was entertaining and I was happy that it ended the way it did. It had a great, happy ending unlike other books. Lots of people would like to read this but I think people who want to start out with something amazing and fulfilling like the Hunger Games trilogy.
