This book is stuck in my head. I just can't forget it. It captured my attention, and I couldn't look away. I didn't even get up to look at the Australia Day fireworks, because the book was too good. Winter was a sad story, but also very touching. When reading it, I felt like I connected with Winter, the author John Marsden is amazing at both capturing emotions and putting them into words. The storyline was unforgettable and outstanding.  I loved this book.
