Book Review:

This book is about teens fighting against cancer. Parents need to know that this book may be uncomfortable for sensitive readers. Characters tell about what its like to be dying, characters lose eyes, legs, etc. There is some swearing and drinking and the two main characters do have some sexual interaction though it is only detailed briefly. This is a mature and powerful story. Hazel not only tells about what its like to by dying and know about it, but she also tells about how it feels to lose somebody, but also how to love herself and others even though it may bring pain. I recommend this book towards mature readers. This book through all of what is said above it brings hope, and shows warmth towards other people. It is an emotional book that may even bring some to tears. This book explains different emotions as it wraps into wonderful story.
