This book is the kind of extremely emotional story I avoid. It's a good story and very tragic and uplifting, but I've never done well with tear-jerkers. The story is of a girl who starts to work with terminally ill kids at the hospital. When she meets a boy with cancer who is around her age, well, you know how the stories go. She falls in love.
It's very much from the perspective of a teenager. There are moments that make me think of a soap opera and others that make me think of a chick flick. Even if it isn't the type of story I like, McDaniel does a good job at writing that kind of a book. Most likely teenage girls in their older teenage years will like this more than younger girls or boys in general
