If you haven't been to Charlotte, NC, you will want to once you've read this book. Told from the heart of the Stout family, it is a true story and moving book about their young daughter who may have succumbed to cancer, but she made it her last wish to grant wishes to others.

No rating yet, as I haven't finished it. Story of Hope, a little girl that had cancer, who used her MakeAWish to grant the wishes of the other children in her area awaiting their wishes. Such a selfless act in a world full of sh*t. I cry uncontrolably when telling friends of this remarkable kid. One downside is that it's got major religious overtones which totally turn me off, but if you focus on the facts, it's not so bad, and I feel like this little girl deserves to have her story read.

I found this to be a very real and raw story of what it would be like to go through the loss of a child.
I laughed at the humor and sobbed during the hard parts. At time I felt like a fly on the wall during the family's experiences.
I definitely recommend this book even for those that are not spiritual. It can really open your eyes to have fleeting life can be and what is really important.

What can you say about a sweet and fiery redhead who was suffering from bone cancer and her last wish was to help 155 children have their wishes..

The Stouts should be so proud of their little girl

It was really sad but it had some funny parts. Hope wasn't really scared of dying but the actual treatment.

It was ok. The story is inspirational but the faith parts could have been a little more subtle.

thanks
