Oh Lord! I think this is the most I've cried reading a book, EVER!
This book just gave me such raw sadness that no book had ever done. The story was so sad and felt so real that I couldn't stop crying for reading at least the last half part of the book. And I couldn't keep myself from thinking about my own parents, especially my Dad. It's not that he has a bad sickness or something (Thank God! And I hope he never will, Amen!), but it's just that I'm the closest child to my Dad, so that's why I felt the story just could be so real that I hoped with all my heart that it would never happen to me! The thing is...I've always been like Taylor, my Dad sorta has this special attention for me and we've always been the closest ones between the parents and the kids. And I just can't imagine, God...
Anyway, the book was incredible. It's the kind of book that you really need to pass on to your family, especially your children, when you have one. Great story, great writing, great reading! (Though you need to prepare a box of Kleenex for this one!-.-)

“In all the medical dramas I’d ever seen, there was always some solution, some last-minute, miraculously undiscovered remedy. Nobody ever just gave up on a patient. But it seemed like in real life, they did.”
Morgan Matson, Second Chance Summer

“Looking at it, I got, for the first time, why people would bring flowers to sick people, stuck inside the hospital with no way to get outside. It was like bringing them a little bit of the world that was going on without them.”
Morgan Matson, Second Chance Summer

“Knowing that each breath was another moment he was still here and, simultaneously, that meant that he had just moved a little closer to being gone.”
