2.5 stars. I didn't love it, but I didn't hate it. It was okay. Sweet. Sometimes enough to be worthy of a cavity warning. A lot of crying...a lot. The abuse warranted it I guess, it just got a bit old after awhile. There was also a lot of POV switching, sometimes between paragraphs. The story itself was decent: damaged boy finds love and all that (and I'm a sucker for those stories I admit it.) But it would have been much better with smoother editing; both for grammar and content.
