October Baby not only is something I can grasp onto knowing I'm not alone, but the messages found inside encourage me to look to my future,
"I'm alive for a reason."
The book itself is written so amazingly, and the story is 'moving' at a comfortable pace for me, unlike other books that go to slow, or to fast.
My emotions were most definitely matched at times or even more extreme than Hannah's was. At certain times If I was in that situation, which is probable, I definitely would of lashed out to her parents, and pull the 'I'm-not-a-minor-anymore' stunt.
I most definitely recommend this book to ALL adopted teens or even adults out there!
I read October Baby while on a recent road trip and could hardly put it down. It's a great story and you will have all kinds of feelings as you read it. Besides being an enjoyable read, this book really caused me to think about some big issues and the many facets of these issues.
First of all, this is a novelization of the movie. The author took the movie and wrote a book based on it--not the other way around. I wish I had paid more attention to that before I plunked down my money.
But besides that, the writing is sloppy, the characters are stiff and lack emotion, and the author chose to tell not show.
Stick to the movie. Rachel Hendrix, who plays Hannah, brings the character to life in gut-wrenching reality. You feel her confusion, her pain, and her sense of loss in ways the book fails to touch. The movie drew me into the scene and made me feel as though I were there beside Hannah, not just watching a movie. The book made me feel distant, like I was watching from a far-off place.
