review 1: I am usually a fan of a good disaster or a good virus/pandemic book, but the author put both of these ideas together in just a little over 30 pages. There was almost too much going on, but not enough at the same time. I think if the author had stuck with the earthquake/tsunami ...

review 1: This was the most intense book I've read in a long time. In fact, parts of it were so difficult to read, I almost gave up, but I'm glad I finished it. This is a book about people with scars, mostly inner scars. The characters have the most painful lives imaginable and are each...
