Well, I loved this book. Its probably not one I would have picked up on my own - knowing it was about cancer and that it would be seriously sad and depressing. But having received a free copy, I knew I had to read it.

And I'm so glad I did. It's true, it was sad and it did make me cry (a lot); HOWEVER it also made me laugh (out loud sometimes). The main character, Campbell, may not appeal to or connect with everyone. But I liked her. She's negative, sarcastic, a bit rude, very matter of fact, trusts in rationality and reasoning, and believes in nothing. But what else should you expect from a person who has spent the majority of her life fighting an impossible fight, knowing that she will never win? But as a reader, you want her to believe in something. You hope for a miracle for her since she won't hope for one herself.

My real only gripe is that it could have used a bit more detail/description. I felt that it jumped a bit and needed better flow/transitions in just a few places.

But please don't let that keep you from reading it! Its definitely worth putting on your "to read" list.
