it was amazing
Read in January, 2012

This was breath-taking. Seriously. I don't usually like weepy books (this is no spoiler--you know going into a book about kids with terminal cancer that it's not all going to end well), but this one felt so honest and non-manipulative. And who can make teenagers quoting Shakespeare and T.S. Eliot's Prufrock actually sound cool? I'm sure I couldn't. The book was smart and beautifully written.

Karin I agree. The writing was so smart and the emotions and issues surrounding death and dying were so honestly addressed. I couldn't put it down. Thanks for the great suggestion
