My Opinion:
Another great book from the Chicken Soup for the Soul series, and if you have been a reader of my blog for some time, you will know I have read a few of these.
I read these books when I need to be filled with inspiration, hope and even strength. Every time I need it, I read the stories and immediately feel a connection. Even a Nascar themed story can fill you with hope and leave you feeling good.
This is definitely a book I will pass on to the biggest Nascar fan I know, my mom.

REVIEW:
I sorta hated the beginning.
Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see.
It doesn't take long to get light though.
Thankfully.
Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too.
Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would be like if everyone thought you were o…

REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…
