I used to be so good at science when I was younger, but now the smallest hint of science (and math) will make my brain shut down. So even though there was a lot of that going on, the book was so good. I loved Rocky so much (as well as the interactions between Ryland and Rocky). I just think it’s sick that if this were to ever be made into a movie I would not be able to watch it because Rocky would terrify me. 

Anyways, this book also made me cry. It was heartwarming yet slightly sad, and I just really loved the friendship between Ryland and Rocky.
