***PDL’s Rating: 4.5 Punches (Really Liked)***
I think One Small Thing is supposed to be a sad book but throughout all I felt was anger. I was engrossed and found myself whole-heartedly mad at the world because I can see this happening as I was reading. It made me sit back and think so hard because I can easily relate to why each character was behaving and reacting to each situation the way they did. To be honest, I think I was most angry with myself because no matter which way I dissected it I can see myself in each one of these characters, for the good AND the bad (okay maybe not one particular character). One Small Thing truly opened my eyes and reminded me to never judge or ridicule until you have walked in another’s shoes.
I usually find myself bored as soon as I figure out the plot and how it most likely will wrap up. However, with One Small Thing – it’s completely beside the point. With this story it’s more of knowing but your heart needs the confirmation in order for it to continue to beat.
One Small Thing covered a few tough topics and covered it well. It gives us light at the end of the tunnel.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book. It’s not a light-hearted book yet not a heavy read either. I really hope you all give it a go!
