    Please Don't Let Me Die is an excellent book. It is a book every

    Please Don't Let Me Die is an excellent book. It is a book every parent and teen should read together or at least discuss together.  The pain of losing a child must be horrible and then to lose her to a tragedy the way they did compounded the effects. The criminal justice system is not parent friendly  or even compassionate. It just adds to the stress of an already difficult situation. This book is so emotionally charged that it is hard to put down. As a parent of two teenage daughters, I made them read the book and we discussed the topic(not for the first time). The book then was passed on to others who I felt should read the book.Thank you Patrick for writing such a difficult book. I am sure it helped to put into words some of the feelings experienced but did not distract from having to experiencing them.I recieved the book from the Book Club Network for my honest review.

    Please Don¿t Let Me Die was a book every parent should read, alt

    Please Don’t Let Me Die was a book every parent should read, although it’s a heartbreaker. It was difficult only because I was able to put myself in the McCarthy’s family shoes and walk the horrible nightmare they had to experience. I’m grateful they chose to write the book, sharing their family’s tragedy with the rest of the world, to maybe try and help prevent this from happening to someone else. I consider the McCarthy family brave. They went through something no family should ever have to experience. Thank you for sharing your pain with others. Thank you for choosing to take something horrible and working for positive change for others. I’m so sorry for your loss.
