    " It was a very sad book; it seems like I'm always reading a sad book... "

    " It's been so long since I read this book, but it always haunts me. This book has always stayed with me and I just remembered how much I liked it. "

    " Beautiful, lyrical, and captivating. The narrator holds tight you tight, almost out of desperation, and you want to comfort her. This review will make no sense until you read the book. "

    " of all of the books about girls on comas, this was probably my least favorite. it was pretty well written, but it just lacked a gripping factor. reading about some depressed person for hundreds of pages gets pretty old after awhile. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Iona | 1/14/2014

    " This book made me laugh and cry, sometimes within sentences of each other. so amazing. "

    " All Rivers Flow to the Sea is a book i keep coming back to. Rose is a deep character who is confused and lost without her sister who is now in the hospital because of a car accident they had. I liked the way her explanation of what happened got a little longer each time she said it. Rose was a believeable character that you couldn't help but feel bad for and Tom was the ideal boy, for her, who you felt drawn to. I really enjoyed this book because Rose went back into her memories of Ivy and you got to know her sister through those moments and it's also nice to read a book where the people aren't perfect but struggling to keep themselves together in a believeable manor. Not the prom queen who falls in love with the biker, but the girl whose mother has issues, her father left, and is taken care of by her neighbor whose son died because broken people seem to find each other and i loved how complex the relationships were.

    " I might try to read this book again, to analyze it and try to understand it better, because in my opinion... it was horrible and pathetic. She was pathetic. "

    " let go of what u cant have "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Stephanie A. | 10/13/2013

    " At some point I just started punching the book for its incessant repetition of the same infuriating paragraph. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kim Broomall | 9/21/2013

    " It's short, but it took me forever to get through it. I HATE when that happens. Nothing about it was particularly involving or interesting for me, except maybe that conversation about bread and butter. Not a bad book, but not a very "grabby" one. At least the writing was gorgeous... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alexis | 10/12/2012

    " The story is about 2 sisters who get into a car wreck. Rose is the sister who was not injured in the wreck. Her and her emotional roller coaster is base of this story. Throughout this story she learns how strong she really is. "

    " I really liked this book, but it had some language. It is about dealing with your grief. This girl's sister is in a coma. So, she has to visit her and deal with it. It's worth reading. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 rochejad | 11/14/2011

    " A very poignant yet enlightening book. This book contains what most of us asks about life and death. It's a very short book but it leaves a mark in you as a person. "

    " Clearly written book for young adults about grief. Good for adults, too. "

    " A gorgeous book. It is filled with rich prose and beautiful language. While the plot is not perfect, it remains one of my favorite books because of how Alison is able to tie the present and the past in this unique and engaging way. It's a short read, definitely worth it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nikki | 1/5/2011

    " 3.5 stars. Grabbed this at a library sale for 50 cents. The lyrical prose fits the story really well and pulls you along just like water. It's a beautiful look at a girl trying to cope with grief despite lack of closure. "

    it haunts me all the time. i cryed almost constantly because i understood so well what she was talking about. it hit home.

    i loved it. "
