Being a young student, halfway through my third grade of school, and not one who enjoyed reading, this book changed me for the better. One of the most important rules I ever learned about writing books was that the title can hook a reader. When I walked through the book fair I rarely went into the novel section, but something about the words Chemo Kid just made me wonder, 'Could there be something special within those pages?' And indeed, I found a story which made me want to start being a better person, even at the age of 8.
