Holding Up the Universe by Jennifer Niven is a sweet story about two characters who have their
own personal struggles and over the course of the book they come together to accept their
differences and form an amazing bond. This book deals with important issues such as
self-confidence, and it will definitely make you smile by the end. I only gave it 3 stars because it
was a little bit more difficult for me to stay interested than with other novels, but overall it's a
really good read.
