This was an odd yet cute book that had some spoilers in it but since I have the brain of a goldfish they will just slip right out before I read the books that were mentioned. I think there should have been a warning about that since you can't expect every reader to have read every single book they want to read yet. In my case the list just gets longer and longer so I found that a bit annoying although it did fit in with this book since Sara is a book lover.
This will appeal to people who absolutely love books and might even prefer them to people. You know who you are. I would love to have a pen pal/book buddy that I could write letters to and send books to and vice versa. Sara and Amy bond over their love of books over a period of two years before Sara decides to come all the way from Sweden to Iowa. When Sara gets there she gets some news. I liked this book but it was kind of odd because I don't think anything close to this could happen in reality. The people in the small town of Broken Wheel were all interesting but not really realistic since I don't think what happened would ever happen in reality.
