Regine’s book is a heartfelt account of a teen living with cancer. It’s both sad and uplifting, as you really get a sense of Regine’s personality and a rare glimpse into her life. One of the unique things I really loved about this book was the artwork, poetry, and photographs that were Regine’s personal work, which are seen throughout the book along with photos of her friend and family. There are also a fair number of photos of her during various stages of her illness. The text is extremely compelling and really makes you want to read on, and even though you already know that she eventually dies, you can’t help but to cheer her on and hold out hope that some miracle will happen with the cancer treatment and that she will survive. I also especially like the comments from her blog readers, as it really gives the reader more of a real life aspect to the book, and an immediacy that is special. At the end of the book, you really think you have known and met Regine and her family. This is truly a special book about a special girl told in a very beautiful way. I loved it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Regine’s Book is the emotional true story of a teenage girl with leukemia, as told through her own personal blog she started to document her life. Her battle with cancer is brave—as is her decision to try and share her story online. Through her emotional and honest posts, you’ll forget she is only a teenager. She takes the disease head-on, never backing down and never giving up. Her story—supported by posts and diary entries from her family and friends—is one you can’t miss. An amazing read—definitely, definitely worth 5 stars!!!!!!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

This book was a totally addicting read, even though the subject matter is pretty sad. Regine originally started blogging about her battle with cancer and then after she passed away the blog became this book. The blog format makes it easy to read, and many of the heartwarming comments from readers of her blog are included, as well as her pictures and poetry. I definitely cried a lot, especially toward the end of the book. But I highly recommend it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Regine’s Book is a vivid personal story written by a beautiful teenager in a terrifying situation. (Many photographs are in the book.) Through her insightful and passionate reflections, readers will discover a richer world, as well as a renewed appreciation for life, art, and the power of the human spirit. It is a sad story, but Regine has an amazing will to live, and the lessons she learns has significance for all of us. Highly recommended for ages 12 and up.Was this review helpful?
