Questions

Was the ending satisfying?

This book had a very good ending but not a satisfying one, although it ended the story that the book was focusing on it did not end the story of the main characters lives.

Why would you recommend this book?

I would recommend this book because it tells a very powerful story, although it is one about love and some might put it into the category of another cheesy love story. It is far from it as it has real life situations and shows them in a less romantic way then other authors might have.

What did you enjoy about the book?

I enjoyed the fact that it didn't try to romanticize the main characters struggle with cancer and make this book to cheerful, but instead showed it how it was and added all of the struggles a person might go through.

What was the authors purpose for writing this book?

I think the author wrote this book to show a different kind of teenage love story. Because the book was deep and dealt with many struggles especially those of someone who knows they have a terminal illness and everything they do could be the last thing they do.
