Ruby’s heart sinks when she learns that her father wants to move back to LA, but she is happy knowing that he decides to stay. She then decides that she is ready to face every challenge until her father is around her and with her.This book has been really valuable as it teaches us some very important lessons. Most of the books teach us how it is always good to be caring, loving, and generous but this book showed a different yet true dimension. It showed how people pay the price of being good. It showed how Ray struggled due to his nature of being generous and kind towards people around him. It also showed how being nice can be perceived differently by people around us such as how his daughter perceived it and how the confident lady Carla perceived it by being hurt and considering the help a loan to be repaid. Not all people have the tendency to understand and take thing the way they are. People think differently and thus what is good for one person may be perceived as something negative for the other.Ray’s endless desires to help everyone have also been portrayed in this book which tells the reader how people have the subconscious desires and motivation to help other people out whenever they can and this goodness can sometimes lead to.
