The Sweetest Thing by Lilian Darcy

Darcy told a beautiful story, and as a result, I came to care about everyone I came across. What I liked most about her story was just how interconnected everyone was. My favorite character, surprisingly, was Sugar; it's not too often that the "fan favorite" is someone who most people could easily argue is the Villain or the most flawed character. But what I loved about Sugar was that she had it all. She loved, she lost, and more importantly, she loved again until her last breath. It's often say that it's impossible for people to change, but I believe it isn't. It's the fear of being rejected, the fear of not being good enough despite the change that keeps people from taking the risk of changing. This is a beautiful story about love, forgiveness, trust, pain, and perhaps most of all, about acceptance. We could all use a little more of that in our lives, don't you think?
