Very well done. I enjoyed the story and performance.
Initially was hesitant to listen since I had a son with medical issues but realized it was not about that, more about coming of age love intensified by the limited time both characters have.
I didn't think of this as a favorite but after time has pased, I think of it fairy often. It's not for everyone but if you can accept that fact that the character has terminal cancer, as she has, you can appreciate her ability to live a somewhat normal life.
I haven't listened to any others.
Subjects were spoken about in an everyday kind of conversation, no over dramatizing, which people with illness's are able to do.
LIFE GOES ON
I loved the fact that this young girl found some romance in her short life and that her friend was sensitve to her needs without pitiying her..
My daughter asked me to read the book and I loved the story so much that I then got the audiobook and watched the movie. Wonderful and real!
The parts about Gus dying is very touching, made me wonder how I would die. But the beginning is a little dragging and at some point I almost lost interest to keep reading . But I'm very glad I finished the book, wouldn't want to miss the end.
From Wilm., De. Love reading and audiobooks. Other interests include cooking, attending cultural events, my dogs, birding, music and movies.
Wonderfully written and narrated. Very exhilarating, and heart wrenching friendship (love) story of two chronically ill teens.
