    I have just recently finished reading the book Always and Fore

    I have just recently finished reading the book Always and Forever by Lurlene McDaniel. This book was about a girl named Melissa and her fight with leukemia. It all starts out with her getting strange bruises on her body and no one knows where they came from. After she discovers she has leukemia her, her family, and her best friend (more like a sister) Jory are just trying to make it through everyday life. Throughout the book Melissa endures numerous hospital visits, but somehow throughout all her hospital visits she is more worried about school, her grades, and what college she is going to get into. To find out what else happens you will need to read the rest of this book. Will Melissa live? Will she fall in love? You will just have to read and find out.

    This story was a very exciting read and it was a page turner, I couldn’t put it down because I needed to know what was going to happen next. This story is very believable because it does happen in real life. In real life people get cancer and they either live or die. In this story I found myself crying while reading in class. I really got involved in the story and found myself feeling like I had learned a lot about Melissa and her everyday life. The characters in this story seemed realistic and the author did a good job of describing them in detail so that in every part of the story the reader could relate to what was happening in their lives. If I had to choose what actors I would use to star if this book was made into a movie I could, because of how well the author described the characters.

    The science content in the book is very realistic because of how people in real life do also get cancer. Also in the book it talks about the treatments like chemotherapy which makes your hair fall out, and it also talks about a bone marrow transplant which is one of your last hopes for getting rid of cancer. I’m not sure how much more I would like to find out about cancer and the treatment options for cancer because I don’t really want to think about it. Thinking about cancer to me is saddening but, this book actually made me want to maybe think more about becoming a doctor so I could save someone’s life if maybe they had cancer.

    In my opinion at the beginning of this book you might want to put it down and stop reading because the beginning made me kind of skeptical about how well the rest of the book is written. Although if you keep reading I promise you that you will become intrigued in the book and you will want to keep reading. I would recommend this book to mostly girls who just enjoy reading in general and I would say that they should age from 13 to any age. The reason I don’t believe guys would enjoy this book is because it is mushy in some areas and I don’t think they have as many emotions as girls do so they wouldn’t feel as much pain for what is happening in the story. Finally out of 5 stars if 5 was the highest I would give this book a 4 because I have read books better than it, but there’s not many that have been above it that I can recall.
