This insomniac's opinion:
Holy buckets. I am so humbled by this book. I consider myself a kind and forgiving person. However, this book was full of stories of absolutely extraordinary forgiveness and I cannot help but wish to be an even kinder, more forgiving person. I am moved beyond belief. I cannot recommend this book enough!
Worth staying up all night to read?
Yes! That is, if you can read with the deluge of tears pouring from your eyes.
5 gigantic, glittering stars.
