This book has so much meaning, so much honesty, so much feelings. Amy and Robbie are brother and sister. Robbie teased Amy but, he loved her very much and she loved him. Then Robbie gets very sick. Amy and her best friend hop on a train so they can sneak Amy and Robbie's dog Sam into the hospital so Robbie could see him. If you want to know how it all turns out, I recommend reading this book. I truly enjoyed reading this book!! Thank you Jen Cousineau for this book!!

You know what I hate? Children's books that talk about grownup stuff. Like your sister's period. Or how dad likes to watch mom run because she bounces.
I also hate books where parents belittle their children for being overweight.
Just saying.

This was one of my favourite books when I was about ten. Brilliant kids book with nice characters, relevant themes and a good moral.

Read as a child and have re-read it a few times since. I love this book, it's so sweet and sad, I'd say it's easily one of my all-time favorites.

once I opened the first page, I stayed up all night until I finished reading it. The plot is dramatic I supposed. Still, I don't get why I cried the whole time while reading this novel.
