Overview

When Katie O'Roark receives an invitation from the One Last Wish Foundation to spend the summer at Jenny House, she eagerly says yes. Katie is ever grateful to the anonymous "JWC," the person who gave her the gift that allowed her to receive a heart transplant. Now Katie is asked to help others who, like herself, are facing medical odds against them.



Being a "Big Sister" to Amanda, an eleven-year-old victim of leukemia; Chelsea, a thirteen-year-old candidate for a heart transplant; and Lacey, a fifeen-year-old diabetic who refuses to face her problems, is a challenge. As the summer progresses, the girls form a bond of friendship as they behave "just like healthy kids."



When a crisis occurs and one of the girls does not get to fulfill her dreams, the friends are devastated. The girls vow to gather each summer, so long as one of them is alive, in honor of their dreams and of a friendship strong enough to endure beyond this life.

Please Don't Die is possibly the best Lurlene McDaniel book I have read so far!! I haven't read all of them yet, but I'm telling you I absolutely LOVE this book!!!!!I have every single time that I have read it adn believe me I've read it many times!

When I first picked up this book I was like 'yawn, yawn'. I always judge a book by its cover. And the cover of this book didn't look so convincing. But, there was ONE thing Lurlene McDaniel did wrong. You know what? She gave out the whole story in the title and also in the back of the book. The only mysterious part was JWC. This story was like Harry Potter. Once I picked it up I couldn't stop reading. Lurlene McDaniel has the rights to be known all over the world, just like J.K. Rowling. If only she would enforce her books more. They are very, very interesting. This was my 1st Lurlene McDaniel book..and it blew me away.. it was sad, yet VERY interesting and enjoyable.

I really enjoyed this book. I really like the way that the book is written and the way Lurlane McDanels makes the book sound so life like. Sometimes I acually thought I was in the story myself.

The book was fantastic. I loved this book!!! I usually look at a book and judge it by its cover, and this one didn't look too good. I read it anyways. I was very wrong!

This book was great. It only took me 1 day to read it because it was so good. I thought it was sad when Mandy died. I hope the rest of the books are as good as this one.

I absolutly LOVED this book!!! It was very sad, it made me cry the two times I've read it. But it's also a story of courage, deteremination, and freindship. When a tradgedy tests there freindship they pull together and find the meaning of freindship. with the real-life whirl of emotions, this book is a great read!

I wasn't into these books until my friend got one from the library in her school and told me to read it. Knowing that I would like it, I sat down and read it. It took me 1 day to read that book. Now I want to read every single one of Lurlene McDaniel's books. But this is my favorite one out of the books I have read. I would encourage you to read this book because it tells how we all go through life and how some are right now. It really taught me a lesson on how to live life to the fullest.

Some people think that dreams have to be big and expenses well what if there was a dream that someone wanted and it was just to stay alive and live a normal life. Well in this book that person is Amanda a girl who has cancer and wants to be able to still live a normal life with all her great friends at Jenny House. But Amanda does not get to live her dream because she takes a turn for the worse. So please dont think dreams have to be big because sometimes the most important dreams are small and simple. Please read this book it will give you a different look at life and at dreaming.

When I first picked up this book, it was because of my friend, a long time reader of Lurlene McDaniel. She told me that this was a really good book, and, altough it's depressing in parts, a book that I should read. So I reluctantly read Please Don't die. As soon as I got into the book, I realized the magic that Lurlene McDaniel puts down on paper. The detail; the images; the way you feel as if you know the characters. Because of my friend, I have read other books that Lurlene McDaniel has written. And so I would encourage all of you readers who are questioning the quality of her writing to pick up this book and discover the meaning of this story yourself.
