By page 10 I had tears in my eyes and they never went away, rather they turned into a full on sob by the time I got to the last third of the book. Such a beautiful story about love, the human spirit, life and death. So many of us have been touched by the cruel grips of cancer,either ourselves or someone we care about. This story is an important reminder that life is yours and every minute of it should bring you reflection and wonder. No one can validate your importance and a legacy really matters most to the people who love you the most. This book is a must read. A special read by John Green.
