Review: I had been waiting forever to read Jumping Off Swings. I had really high expectations and Jo Knowles definitely surpassed them. I fell in love with this book from the beginning. It pulled me in right away, it was so descriptive. I felt like I was actually there. The characters were so well written, everything about this book just flowed. There was never a moment when I was like "Couldn't something better happen?". Every part of this book was amazing, I'm so glad I got to read it. But, I think one of the best parts of this book is that it really makes you think. After reading this book I really thought about a lot of my past decisions and the effect they have on everyone around me, not just myself. I actually changed somethings in my life after completing this book. I'm a lot happier with my life now and I really think I owe it to Jumping Off Swings and especially Jo Knowles. You should read this book the first chance you get.
