    I was just wondering if anyone else shed a tear or two when...
    Jake ducked out of the way of Oswald's bullet and Saddie got shot, and then her final dying words - "How we danced!" It really got to me, I think primarily because of the relationship the two had, and the plans they had for once they had stopped Oswald. I even cried when they done that school play... Moving stuff.
    I had never cried from a book before reading this last year, and I still remember that ending, and my reaction to it. Due a re-read soon I think!

    The relationship between Sadie and Jake was the backbone of this book. I wanted them both to survive this.

    Oh...my heart. Yes, that book was a fabulous love story and made me cry a few times. What a great book that was!

    I cry during the average Cheerio commercial, so I'd bet on it.

    I do to!!!
    I was never like that until a few years ago. I remember reading the final Harry Potter book and sobbing when
    he sees his parents
    to the point where I could not catch my breath.
    it obviously had to do with missing my own parents
    but still, I was a wreck for a few pages! lol

    I've read it 4 times now and cried every time. Always tears of joy at the end though.

    Nope......but I don't cry easily.
    Honestly, I didn't enjoy this story as much as other people did, so I didn't feel any attachment to the characters.

  14. I did cry.... But Im a big softy and books like this that have great meaning in history especially with JFK usually have me in tears. What can I say waterworks on overload sometimes.

    Love this book though.

    I got grit in my eyes which made them water quite a bit. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

    I did. But crying in sad parts of books is not uncommon for me.

    My eyes moistened, but I carried on reading. He has made me put the book down and go off and have a quiet moment on my own 3 times: Duma Key, DT7, Mr Mercedes.
