    This book was thought provoking. It shared insight into life, relationships, loyalties and hardships. The author described the love of friends so well including insecurities, peer pressure, bullying and choices we make that can affect us throughout a lifetime. Each crossroad we choose makes us who we are despite regrets and misgivings. A chance to right wrongs is rare but one we all wish we could have. The Kite Runner is well worth the time and emotion evoked while reading it.
