Jellicoe Road

Jellicoe Road - Melina Marchetta Half way through the book, I was already thinking I'd probably just give this 3 stars at most because it started slow and confusing for me (partly because I was feeling ill when I started reading this, but that's not the point). Now that I'm done with it, I'm left with this warm feeling inside, a knot in my throat and mists in my eyes because it's sad and beautiful and tragic and hopeful all at the same time. The love and friendship in this story are the kind one would wish he/she could have in his or her life.
