• Life is a big journey & a lot of people only care about money. And that doesn't make sense. You need friends to help you in life with all the feelings you have. No matter where you go your problems will stick with you. The choices of if you should do something or not, the answers of life are in you. I think this book is great and excellent and off the hook. Justin is loyal to the heart, he is a very unique, special person and I think he should write even more insightful books - Eleanor "Cupcake" DeMoe Age 9
