Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 6-9-Julie Ellis and football star Luke Muldenhower had everything going for them-popularity, good grades, and love. Then Luke develops Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Shaken to the core, Julie is determined to help him through his chemotherapy and get through this ordeal so their lives can return to normal. Then masses are discovered in his chest and groin area. Soon after he begins radiation therapy, their close relationship begins to deteriorate as Luke pushes Julie away. This novel contains excellent information on cancer treatments and the emotional world of cancer victims and those who love them. The characters are convincing enough to draw readers into the drama and the inevitable conclusions that occur when one is faced with a life-threatening illness. McDaniel shows her literary expertise by humanizing a terrible disease and guiding readers through the whole process of illness. This is a good choice for either bibliotherapy or recreational reading. Just make sure there are tissues nearby.-Jana R. Fine, Clearwater Public Library System, FL

    An Excellent Read

    "Don't Die, My Love" is one of my all-time favorite reads--so far. As a thirteen-year-old this book comes on as a girl's greatest dream and wish, having someone love you more than anything. Julie and Luke's beloved story is quite realistic and lovely, but sad too. In Julie's perspective, the book goes on a emotional roller-coaster of events until the final ones. I cried many times in different places, laughed in the beginning and middle, and felt closure and happiness towards the end. This book is a must-read for everyone and anyone, I enjoyed it greatly.

    You'll definitely cry during this book, but it is phenomenal. The story line is great and you really begin to become a part of the characters, you start to feel how they're feeling. Truly unforgettable story. You will love this book. I recommend it!

    A Must Read!

    This book is amazing! Not only will this book make you thankful for all the blessings you have, but it will also make you thankful for being healthy. When people have a virus, usually you can recover or shake it off. The book Don¿t Die My Love made me cry a river. Lurlene McDaniel made it seem as if I was right there listening to the characters. This book is very tragic. The two main characters are Julie Ellis and Luke Muldenhower. Julie¿s dad is the football coach and treats Luke as if he was his own son that he had always wanted. He absolutely loves Luke! In the sixth grade, Luke asked Julie to marry him, and she just laughed. Then in the eigth grade they started dating! These two characters are deeply in love, but when Luke discovers something horrible, everything goes downhill. This book was clearly well written and gives a clear view of what the author wants you to see. It was very sad thinking about the novel, and how it was based on a true story. Lurlene McDaniel¿s books immediately draw my attention just by the cover. Her books are very heart wrenching and true. When you read this book, you will immediately have tears streaming down your face. In conclusion, this book was not only amazing, but also a fantastic book! I recommend this book to anyone and everyone! After reading this book, I was so thankful that I am not as sick as Luke once was. Don¿t Die, My Love is my favorite book and it could be yours too! This book, in my opinion, was one of her best books she has ever written. Lurlene McDaniel is an extremely talented author! All of her books wonderful and written very well. After reading about Luke it made me count my blessings for everything I do have in my life. It makes you think about the other half, who are sick, and have horrible diseases that they can¿t ever get rid of. As you have read before, I have read this book over and over numerous times throughout this past year. I give Don¿t Die, My Love a five out of five stars. If you love books filled with romance, non-stop love, lots of emotions, and fantastic visual images, than this is the book for you. This book gives amazing, and jaw dropping pictures, because she describes everything so well! I was like a fish that was caught on a hook and reeled in! Lurlene McDaniel does a wonderful job at describing picture, what the characters do, how they feel, and is amazing at describing the plot.

    Truth

    This book is a very touching book. It is a book in which your response or feelings towards the book all depend on your personality. If you are more tough, insensitive, and do not really like love storys then this book would probably not be your best pick. If you are more sensitive, innocent loving, and love love storys then this would be a good pick. I liked this book because i am a hopless romantic. This book has an appealing innocent love that drew me into it and made me part of juile and lukes deep and understanding love.

    Oh my.... This was by far one of my favorite books of all time.

    Oh my.... This was by far one of my favorite books of all time. I cried so much. I liked how their relationship was very typical, something you can realate to. I found myself comparing Julie and Luke to me and my boyfriend and it was amazing how alike we were. I can't imagine being in Julie's shoes and experiencing that, because I would never be able to live without my love <3

    I cry soooooo......... hard every time I read it. It was the first Lurlene McDaniel book I've ever read. Still one of my favorites and I've read about half of her books. She got me interested in reading. She inspired me. When I first read it I refused to read another book. I read it ten times before I gave into reading any other book. I loved it.
