A Piece of Art
1 April 2010 | by (Jordan) – See all my reviews

I first read the book when it was released and I thought it deserves to be a movie because the story is so strong and moving. The only question I had in mind in my imagination was; who would be Veronica? Then after they decided to do the movie, it came to me as a pleasant surprise that Sarah was chosen, I was so happy and I loved her since she did Buffy the Vampire slayer. She is fit to the part and she did a good job. This movie is deep and makes you change the way you live your life. It makes you want to embrace life and use every moment and live each day as if it is your last. I hope this movie gets what it deserves because it does deserve the best.
