Evie Totty: “It ruled.”

Oh my gosh, I went into this with very low expectations. I just read the book (in a day) this past week and since then realized they changed the book (somewhat) giving some characters bigger roles.

The changes (including graduation being moved from 12 to 18) enhanced the story in my opinion. At one point near the end I even began to tear up and chills went through my body. I encourage fans of the book to see it for sure
