The book that I will be reviewing is called the Art of Feeling. This book is all about a girl named Samantha who is dealing with the death of her mother. Shortly after that she meets Eliot who can't feel any pain. Samantha thinks that he is the luckiest person on earth until she realizes the true meaning behind his medical condition. Sam willingly opens up to the tragic accident with her mother to Elliot and finds the real truth about that awful day. I think that the main idea in this book is about the true meaning of friendship, no matter who you are inside. I would give this book a 4.5/5 star rating.
