I absolutely love this book. This book can bring anyone to tears! This book is about choosing between life and death and how to deal with it. This book is about a girl named Alice that is diagnosed with leukemia and her world is crashing down around her, but the year she was supposed to die was the year she finally lived. I think that this book is a different version of The Fault in our Stars but, a better one. I think this because this book has a touch of revenge and remission. The author of this book, Julie Murphy, keeps the story and plot real. What I mean by that is that she keeps it true and relatable. It shows the struggle of teenagers that are in high school. All I can say about this book is to expect the unexpected. I did not expect for this book to have such a heart filled story.

I was really excited to start this book because the summary made it sound very interesting and feel-good. However the summary did not include how much you will hate the main character. I get that it was not the authors intention for the reader to relate to and like Alice but she did not have to make her a cold-hearted reptile who disregarded anyones feelings that weren't her own. For me, it's hard to like a book if I don't like the main character so I tried to separate my feelings of dislike for Alice and that of the actual novel in order to write a fair review. The plot and other character development was superb. So if you can ignore an obnoxious main character, go ahead and read this book, you'll probably love it.
