I had the honor of being sent this book from the author, and i must admit although i do not read much of this genre i was hooked from the first chapter. The character of Bobby is really well written, in-depth and very realistic. I loved the story as a whole feeling along with Bobby, both his ups and his downs as he goes through the toughest part of his life so far. The story-line and the emotions within this book are so well written, you believe that this could happen not only to you but to anyone you know, the book sells love courage and belief, not only in yourself but in others. There are a couple of twists and turns in the book they may come as unexpected for some readers, but again they are well written into the book and really you couldn't want much more. I loved everything about the book from the messages it gives to the realism in dealing with cancer, and what it can do to families. If you are looking for a book with a message and enjoy reading stories that are parallel to real life then i would recommend getting a copy of this, i believe that you will love it. Many thanks to Crystal for giving me the opportunity to read this book i can't wait to see what else she has up her sleeve.
