This is one of the most beautiful novels I have ever read. From beginning to end I was caught up in this story. I was on a plane reading this and I was the last person to deplane because I was so into this novel, and I was in tears in the end. Please read this book.

Natasha and Antonio are High School Sweethearts. Then they are torn apart. Can their live endure real life? This book is told entirely in letter and it grabs you. First time reading this author, but won't be the last.

This book was a beautiful and pure tour de force. It was original, heartbreaking, and uplifting. I highly recommend it for anyone. Honestly if I said anymore it wouldn't do the work justice and might even diminish it for the reader. Just buy it and read.

Wow! UPSTATE was a great book to read. When I first opened the book I was suprise to see it was written using letters for Antiono only sixteen (16) years old, who has been put in jail for the murder of his father. Natasha, only 15 or 16 are both in love. Writes each other for 9 years. This was really something special. Living in New York, Antiono get his GED in prison and Natasha, go to college. A must read.
