I'm a journalist, columnist and slave to a great tale, well told.
The characters and their relationships are compelling—familiar but better than real life. Smarter. Braver. I listened to this book myself, then listened again with my family immediately after, on a road trip -- and was happy to do so. I can't say I've ever done that with another book. Narrator was terrific.
The romantic dinner in Amsterdam. The kiss. The eulogy rehearsal.
Hilarious. Tragic. Inspirational.
This book made me laugh and cry. The witty humor and fast talk combined with an upbeat attitude in the face of certain tragedy is what made the book so amazing to me. The teenage sarcasm is spot on and gives the book an air of reality. Kate Rudd really nails it. The voice and attitude she gives the characters really brings them to life. Each character is unique and different, but without trying to hard. I would listen to more of her books anytime.
I have not read it.
I don't really think I would compare it to any.
No but I would listen as she gave an excellent performance!
Yes this was a can't stop listening long into the night kind of book, I loved it, I recommend it to friends!
I had high expectations for this book because so many raved about it. It was good but not great in my opinion.
I'm a Photographer and Bible student. I like books that challenge me, keep me on the edge and have deep characters.
This was a funny, entertaining book, not too long and always interesting. It's enyoyble even for adults like myself (I'm 31).
The story was awesome, and it's a part of life that I rarely think about: dying young due to cancer.
Really helped me get inside the mind of a girl with cancer. I feel like I could deal with it a tiny bit better after having read this book.
She disappeared into the characters. Her performance really let the story come through.
The second time they encounter their favorite author and if I keep writing I'm going to spoil it.
Amazing. Best book of the year so far.
The story line it was just great how they come together right through to the end even though they had nothing to live for they found each other
It was a very emotional book and bang a tear to many readers eyes
Always busy - always in the car.
The story was so strong that you felt the characters feelings.
Amy and Roger's Epic Detour and Along for the Ride.
I love Kate Rudd, she is has a way pulling you into the story either Romance or Teens or any other
Not happily ever after - just life and death in the "Heart of Jesus."
Love the supporting cast - the parents and friends and even the mean author, but they all matter to the story - I know this book has been out for a while and have put it pretty low on my book list because I heard it was depressing, but it was funny with a serious subject - beautiful story
The story was pretty good about cancer kids but I found the kids and the narrator pretty annoying at times. Some of it was really childish teeny bopper but then they would use big words. This story had some good puppy love and offered an inspiring view of having cancer vs just being depressing about it but I could have done without this book.
dint like the narrator voice. So i stopped reading
very sad. So i stopped reading
