Forever my all time favorite

Like most of the readers... this was the first book to bring out so many different emotions. Love, love, love this book! It's about a irreplaceable friendship, a forever kind of love, and the deepest heartache you could ever experience so young. Read this many many a years ago when I was in 7th grade. I've read it over & over & over again... it is my forever all time favorite!

Read this in 7th grade! I'm 27 now!

This is probably one of my all time favorites! It's the first book that made me feel something... Happy, sad and I actually cried! I remember recommending this book when I was younger! :)

Fav Book.

I'm pretty sure this is my favorite book of all time. I have read it more than once, which says a LOT, because I usually cannot re-read novels even if I try. After I know the story...that's that. I was no more than 10 or 11 yrs old when I bought my first copy of this book. I know because I got it from a school "book fair". I remember picking it up because the title had part of my name in it. Thankfully, I purchased. Say Goodnight, Gracie is about friendship. A boy and girl. It's about their love for one another. They argue. They share interests. They laugh. They skip school together. I love it because it reminds me of my best male friend. My cousin. I find myself laughing out loud to this book. And grieving. And feeling a range of emotions. If you are a young-adult I suggest reading this. I am 28 years old now and I still pick it up every 3-4 years and re-read. :)
