Honestly, this book was heavy. I don’t even know how to review/talk about a book that is about a sixteen-year-old girl and how she’s diagnosed with Leukemia and how her best friend describes the difficulties of coping with your “sister from another mister” dying before her very eyes.

I had to take some time with this book. Cancer is not exactly a light-hearted topic, and it’s certainly hard when somebody like a parent or grandparent is diagnosed, but a teenager of sixteen with her whole life ahead of her is crushed by something that nobody can control, makes it all the more difficult.

This book is good for a couple of reasons:

  1. It opens up the conversation of cancer, or any disease for that matter, that is life threatening. Cancer is serious.
  2. Even if you lose somebody close, time heals. It is possible to continue living life even if you thought it was a terrible idea because you’re guilty that they aren’t there too.

I enjoyed this book. It felt real. It did not feel excessive or dramatized, it was sincere.
