I listened to this book last summer during my long runs and was SO excited for it to come to theaters, but somehow I never went. This past week my dad bought it on tv and let me watch it. OH MY GOODNESS!!!!! It was incredible. I sobbed (which is saying a lot for me because I'm pretty sure the last time I cried was two months ago and it wasn't really crying and can't remember the last time I really cried before that...) Anyway, the point of that all is- it was amazing- if you haven't watched it yet.... do! I love movies about independent and strong-willed people who do not care what others think but will do what they believe to be right, even if it's at the expense of "fitting in". This movie re-emphasizes the knowledge that there is something special inside every one of us and if we allow it to work and work for it, we can accomplish great things.
