I enjoyed so many aspects of this story that are difficult to explain without giving away the plot. Suffice it to say, I fell in love with both of the main characters and loved the experience of the world thru their eyes. At times, I was on a huge emotional roller coaster, and i applauded the author for drawing the reader in so completely. I also gained a much better appreciation of the life and realities faced by a young cancer patient, in a way that kept connected to the story rather than remaining apart from it. Finally, fantastic narration...it completed this audio book in an amazing fashion.
I liked this one. Couldn't stop listening. My students are all reading it so I thought I would give it a try. Glad I did.
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.
Say something about yourself!
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..
