it was amazing
Read in December, 2008

** spoiler alert ** This is one of THE BEST books I have ever read :) It tells of a story of a girl named Kathy whose older brother Brett died of Cancer when she was two and he was seventeen. Nobody has ever kept any photos of her childhood or any dates nobody even remembers her first word because around this time was when Brett was dignosed.Everyone in her family talks of how he's so perfect and she soon begins to dislike the brother she doesn't remember. Then when she turns 16 she discovers her brothers journal that he wrote-just for her- she soon realizes that she was the baby that kept him going through his troubles that he didn't want to die because he would have to leave the only person who really listened and understood him, her. She even realizes that she loved him so much when she was young they were unable to be separated. This tale teaches you that you should appreciate everything big and little notice everything before you dont get the chance anymore. Through Kathy and Bretts struggles you learn to be grateful for your family and friends and to never take them for granted. Watch how Kathy changes as she reads his journal and watch her in her test of faith as things start turning around. This book I read in one day and it brought me to tears by page 90 i'd have a box of tissues at hand :)
