Friends, readers, moviegoers: do you have your Kleenex handy? Because I’m about to ask you about the book that, hands down, made me cry the hardest I’ve ever cried over a book. First, though, you should know that this book, like How I Live Now (posted about yesterday), was just made into a movie. And you know the danger of books made into movies, right?
