I have both the printed and Audio of this book. Her art is great in the print, But the emotion from the people reading this book is moving. Its narrated by many of the people who wrote parts of the book. Her parents Lori and Wayne, you can feel all the feels from there reading.
such a deep
Many are not professional narrators but the people in the book.
its a long book and full of emotion.
British ex-pat living in NC. Have more personalities than Sybil which is reflected in my choice of books! Frustrated writer at heart.
I read 'The Fault in our Stars' so it seemed like a natural progression to read this volume. I had no idea that this was for 'teens' but 90% was not. How can cancer and death be for youngsters. This book make me 'think', cry and re-evaluate my relationships. As a youngster I too faced death so I could empathize. I 'got' it, I 'got' Esther. It brought me back to a time when my friends and family( including my four pawed family) were more important than my 'must do' list. It brought me back to a time when dreams were big and trying was all that mattered. Nothing was impossible and real worries could be brushed aside by a kiss on my forehead or the gentle sweet purring of my cat.
This may not be for everyone but with audible's return policy I highly recommend that you give this book a try. Personally it is a read and reread for this fan.
Esther, sweetie rest in awesome.
