    6. I don t generally read very much ya, but this one sounded really good I was not disappointed It grabbed me from the start, and though it was a bit sad as Josh dealt with the death of his father, it was wonderful to see him turn to his boyfriend, Bradley It was extremely easy to feel the emotions at play as Josh and Bradley supported each other through Josh s loss, as well as their journey to college This was very well written, flowed nicely and was just a nice enjoyable quick read I only wish I [...]

    7.

    8. I like this book A lot.The a lot results from the courage of this story to attest to an understanding that many reject but that I endorse and that some others also know to be true Someone can be your everything This book, whilst being somewhat of a vignette, highlights a period in Josh s life that is without constancyexcept for his boyfriend, Bradley s, being in his life that it is We enter Josh s life just as he is undergoing loss and change and growth, the kind which surpasses that typically e [...]

    10. I beta read this, and was most annoyed with Danni for tricking me into reading something all touching and sweet and lovely because it almost moved me to tears NOT a crier, I wasn t happy about that at all However, now that I m over it, this is one of those stories that will stay with me and make me randomly think of these boys at odd times of the day, with a smile.I love Danni s style of writing It s quick and witty, with loads being said in quirky little comments or actions of the characters Th [...]

    11. 4 StarsFor such a short little story, Not Letting Go and its itty bitty prequel, Sunshine and Buttercups, sure does pack an emotional punch.Y A in theme, this coming of age story deals heavily in parental loss and first love The story is sweet and poignant, and the prose is both graceful and thought provoking The combined edition of this book is currently available for FREE at Smashwords.
