Pretty good

I enjoyed orbiting Jupiter but I thought the characters were all well written I wished you got more information about Joesph and Madeleine's backstory. Also I thought at somethings about the book that was meant to be realistic fiction was to unbelievable. But I loved Joesph's dedication to Madeleine and Jupiter given the situation. I also thought the book could have been a little longer. I thought everything moved to fast and I wished that what the author wrote was more detailed. Other then that I thought I was a wonderful book about a teenagers dedication to his loved ones and new friendships. But be warned this book will leave you with a bittersweet feeling.

Heartfelt

This book makes me want to cry every time I read it. It is so easy to connect with characters. The sacrifices and hardships seen through this book are relatable to many. This book is one of the stories I have ever read. It is the kind of book that is best when snuggled up in bed with a cup of hot chocolate.
