I liked how it had a little mystery in it, but was really about a girl trying to achieve her dreams. I didn’t like the ending though. I think she should have done something the complete opposite.

This is a very powerful "should I follow my dream?" sort of story and I enjoyed it. There is a mystery intertwined within the book which makes it interesting also.
