But it's undeniable that strange things happen in Promise: everlasting sunsets; purple dandelions; flamingoes in the frigid Atlantic; an elusive boy named Asher; and finally, a mysterious envelope containing a list of things for Cam to do before she dies. As Cam checks each item off the list, she finally learns to believe - in love, in herself, and even in miracles.

honest expression of teenage feelings facing death.
The main character, because she could still be surprised by life even though she didn't want to be. She also learned that her attitude and comments, no matter how true, could hurt others. License is not grace.
He voice and narration were perfect for the main character and all the others.
The last scene when she followed the flamingo and her whole family was with her.
This story has stayed with me for a long time. I was really rooting for each person.
I didn't really get to into the book on like the first 3 chapters but after I kept reading more and more I didn't want it to end! It was absolutely fantastic and I sat and cried at the end. This book is a definite must have.
I like to read VERY much .. I'm obsessed with reading I don't have time to actually read a book so I've been a listener for three years now
Emma Galvin .. Maybe
Wendy Wunder .. if it is the same as this one no
yes , because I don't like to read about diseases and death they make me so sad
hmm , I don't remember having a favorite scene in this book
I hope not , and if they are planning to do they may have to change things to make it good because the book is so so sad
I'm looking for a happy ending that's why I didn't like this book so much
