i read this book when i was much younger (im thinking my early teens). i had tears streaming down my face while reading the life of this girl. i would recommend it, especially to a teen/young adult. it makes you really appreciate your life when you are usually rebelling against everything/one at that age.

I read this book many, many years ago and just unearthed it while going through boxes of old books. I felt like it warranted another read. What a uplifting, heart-breaking, bittersweet story. Even considering the book was written by a teenager (16-21), it was better written than many books written by adults. There is a slight naiveté to her writing that is charming. After reading her words, I feel blessed that my family and I are healthy. I can't imagine being locked in that world of sickness or ...more

I think that this is a very good book. It tells about Robyn's struggles growing up and how different she was compared to everybody else. It was also telling about how a lot of her friends were passing away and yet she was still alive. To me this was a very good read and it was kind of emotional for me, because I have a few cousins that have cystic fibrosis. I would recommend reading this book if you don't mind shedding a few tears.

i thought this book was really intersesting and taught me alot about c.f. so i think learned alot in this book. The story nis very great about showing her life of having c.f. and all the challenges she has.

I read this for the first time when I was 11 & haven't forgotten any of it. It was terribly sad & made me cry but Robyn's life is one everyone should know.
