This has been a very painful read, but I’m glad I read this book because the ending was satisfactory. Taylor was rich and popular and had everything until his father killed himself. Then his grandfather deported his beloved Maria. I could understand that anyone at a young age like Taylor’s would have wanted to escape from those bad memories by leaving home. I can very much relate that Taylor dealt with everything by himself until he really needed help. No one can deal with life alone. That’s the moral of the story. Everybody needs someone, and that fact was well depicted in this painful but beautiful story. I’ve had an enlightening experience in reading this book and I recommend it to readers who are into romantic drama.
