    Several times I've asked myself how to review this book. How do

    Several times I've asked myself how to review this book. How do I capture the essence of this book without muddling it? This is a book that will strike you to the core, thrash you about, bring smiles to your face and tears rolling down your cheeks. Regine's words, her photos, her fears, her highs, her lows, her love, her hope and her acceptance of the end. The words of a teen, one moment doing normal teen things and the next getting bone marrow biopsies and chemo and struggling through each day and welcoming another day as she opened her eyes. The love she had for her family and the love her family has for her. The things they miss about her and the things they know they will miss experiencing with her.

    Wrote through the last full change of season's of Regine's life, starting in Autumn 2008 and ending in Autumn 2009, you are brought into her life through journal entries, blog entries, letters, poems, photos, etc. One thing you will notice is that throughout everything, even when Regine was at her lowest points, she thought of others too. She loved life and did her best to help those around her also love life and think of the positive instead of the negative. A girl of strength that has moved mountains with the emotions that come through in this book. No one will turn the final page in this book without having ran through a gauntlet of emotions, no matter how young or old they are.

    Regine¿s book is a heartfelt account of a teen living with cance

    Regine’s book is a heartfelt account of a teen living with cancer. It’s both sad and uplifting, as you really get a sense of Regine’s personality and a rare glimpse into her life. One of the unique things I really loved about this book was the artwork, poetry, and photographs that were Regine’s personal work, which are seen throughout the book along with photos of her friend and family. There are also a fair number of photos of her during various stages of her illness. The text is extremely compelling and really makes you want to read on, and even though you already know that she eventually dies, you can’t help but to cheer her on and hold out hope that some miracle will happen with the cancer treatment and that she will survive. I also especially like the comments from her blog readers, as it really gives the reader more of a real life aspect to the book, and an immediacy that is special. At the end of the book, you really think you have known and met Regine and her family. This is truly a special book about a special girl told in a very beautiful way. I loved it.

    Regine¿s Book is the emotional true story of a teenage girl with

    Regine’s Book is the emotional true story of a teenage girl with leukemia, as told through her own personal blog she started to document her life. Her battle with cancer is brave—as is her decision to try and share her story online. Through her emotional and honest posts, you’ll forget she is only a teenager. She takes the disease head-on, never backing down and never giving up. Her story—supported by posts and diary entries from her family and friends—is one you can’t miss. An amazing read—definitely, definitely worth 5 stars!!!!!!

    This book was a totally addicting read, even though the subject matter is pretty sad. Regine originally started blogging about her battle with cancer and then after she passed away the blog became this book. The blog format makes it easy to read, and many of the heartwarming comments from readers of her blog are included, as well as her pictures and poetry. I definitely cried a lot, especially toward the end of the book. But I highly recommend it.

    Beautiful and Heartfelt - Highly Recommended

    Regine’s Book is a vivid personal story written by a beautiful teenager in a terrifying situation. (Many photographs are in the book.) Through her insightful and passionate reflections, readers will discover a richer world, as well as a renewed appreciation for life, art, and the power of the human spirit. It is a sad story, but Regine has an amazing will to live, and the lessons she learns has significance for all of us. Highly recommended for ages 12 and up.
