Gliori also talks about finding that special thing that has the power to hold that darkness back. This book is perfect for any young person (or old) who needs something relatable when depression calls. A book everyone needs to read. Recommended by Rob

Couldn't put this book down. I fell in love with the flawed characters and I especially loved the character of The man who would become Death.
