Wow, I can’t believe how much this book made me cry. I had no idea that the story of Maurice was going to be so powerful and emotional. Laura Schroff is such an amazing person, it would be a blessing to meet her or someone like her. I’m reccomending this novel to everyone that I know (But, I’m not sure if little children should read it, but it’s up to you). I believe that this book can definately teach people a few things about life. I know it has taught me a bit of knowledge.
