    A 13 year old facing cancer

    This is a small book every young girl or boy should read. Facing a terminal illness at 13 is a reality and for Dawn it happened. One ages fast but in a good way when one goes through chemo and the reality and death now a close companion. Friends become more important and so does life. Yet old friends drift away, scared of who you are now. The little things of life so important to a 13 year old is not so important to one facing death as an ongoing companion, yet it is true for all of us even if we don't have cancer. This is about a 13 year old girl who wants to live but is scared of what it takes to fight cancer. Even if she beats the cancer will she ever be "normal?" But the book is not about cancer but about living with cancer and fighting it and going on with life enjoying ever moment we have here. She meets others with cancer at a summer camp and has the greatest time of her life. She finds the best friend ever and share the same challenges. But Dawn is on the road to reality not fantasy and must face it all; life, death, suffering. She will never be the same girl she was before she came down with cancer, but she can be a much better person if she has the courage to push on.

    I found this a fascinating read and the author did a really great job in putting it together. There are gems in this book that will stay with you for a very long time. The reader will find themselves part of this battle of life and will also come away a better person. And the two main characters will be close to you.

    Absolutely the best book i have ever read

    I am 10 and i have read this book a million times at least i am a bookworm and i love this book it telks about dawn having to face cancer and she met a friend and they went to camp together and all that. I think about how hard it must be to stay strong and jow hard it is on her family and how her friends dont have anything in common anymore and it is worth the money any day i suggest tha everyone reads it cuz it changed my perspective of many things and made realize the reality that kids can get cancer and their whole lives can get turned upside down by it. It makes me cry everytime and i think about it months after i finish reafing it. I can quote the book by now becuz i red it so my times and alays think about it. I very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very highly recommend this book!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The best book I have ever read!

    I stayed up watching this all night. I let my best friends borrow my NOOK so they could read it too. I read it right before my uncle was diagnosed with cancer which was like a week ago. Now I can understand what he is going through.

    GREAT BOOK . Must Read!

    Six Months to Live.

    This book was mind catching I couldn't take my eyes off of it, Lurlene really knows how to put her heart into her stories especially in Six Months to Live. McDaniel began writing about young adults when her son Sean was diagnosed with juvenile diabetes at the age of 3. His illness changed the lives of everyone in her family forever. Her stories are powerful, inspirational stories about courage, love, and strength in the face of overwhelming trauma. McDaniel's books touch the hearts and spirits of the teenagers and adults who read them even mines.
    When 13-year-old Dawn Rochelle is diagnosed with leukemia, she's scared. While in the hospital undergoing chemotherapy, Dawn meets Sandy, who also has cancer. Dawn and Sandy battle the disease together, and remain best friends even after they both go into remission and return home. But when Sandy gets sick again, Dawn wonders what the future holds both for Sandy and herself.
    I really enjoyed reading this book. It makes you think twice about the way you look at life and that you only live once, so enjoy it. The book had me on edge page by page and I just couldn't out the book down. It was also informative because it gave you the reader many life facts about cancer and how many young patients deal with it. I agree with the way she explained how children cope with having a deadly disease at such a young age. This book makes me revise how I think of people and the way I treat people. I don't know what people go through at home so I'm quick to hear and slow to speak.

    yea ths book is awesome!!

    This book is the best book on the planet to me. It starts of about a little girl you is 13 years old and she just found out that she has leukemia cancer. A cancer that makes you sick from all of the drugs you have to take and it also makes you loose your hair. At first she is very sad and depressed because she is alone in the hospital and she is loosing her hair. This story is about a little girl who is 13 years old and she has just found out that she has cancer. Dawn Rochelle goes in the hospital for remission and she meets Sandy. They like to go to remission with each other; they find it comfortable for each other. The girls become real good friends and start to do everything and anything together. Until one day Dawn finds something very terrible about Sandy. This book to me was very catching and sad but in most places it was very joyful also. When I first read the part when Dawn found out she had cancer that really brought some tears to my eyes, and it was like I couldn't stop. This book" Six Months to Live" is the best book you could possibly read. I myself don't like to read but I will only read these books.If you really want to find out if Dawn overcomes her cancer you should really read this series, because it gets interesting. Another thing you might want to find out is what happens to Sandy I'm sure the people that has read this book are all dying to know because I was.

    Is it time to go.

    I liked the book 6Months To Live by Lurlene McDaniel,because it is sad when a regular 13 year old girl, is tired all the time because she had acute lymphocytic leukemia. So its really sad. When she(Dawn) was in the hospital she meet a girl that had the same thing as her. Sandy and Dawn became the best of friends. They go into remission together, goto cancer camp together. Then finally something terrible happens. I think that people that like non -fiction would love it. It is a mixture of sad, happy, and, love. The book is very sad and you would probably cry. Boys might not like it as much as girls because it focuses on girls with boys and the girls act coy.

    Is it tme..... For you to go

    In the Dawn Rochelle book series by Lurlene McDaniel, this thirteen year old girl receives the most shocking news of her life. She finds out that she's diagnosed with leukemia a hair losing type of cancer. When put in the hospital for chemotherapy another young girl her age named Sandy also has leukemia. They become best of friends as they fight the cancer. Both Dawn and Sandy were beautiful girls, known for their amazing talents & gorgeous looks. These two girls were very sick from all their drugs they had to take. Although after Cancer Camp they returned home, and Dawn found out something terrible happened to her friend. What will happen to Sandy? How will everyone treat dawn now? Is there any time left for them to live? In this book there are a lot of ups and downs and it might make you cry. This is an excellent book and I would recommend it to anyone. Don't forget the story continues with many books. I also recommend other books by Lurlene McDaniel.

    i love this book!

    I felt sad when I read this book. Because Dawn had a lot of hardships such as undergoing chemotherapy treatments to treated for her leukemia, losing hair to the treatment and being sick all the time. But, I felt happy that she met a friend named Sandy because she understood what Dawn went through. Dawn was afraid of what will happen to her, but after meeting with Sandy, Dawn have a strong faith and a hope. Sadly, something terrible happened to Sandy and Dawn got real scared, but still hoping. If you want to know what happened, find it out when you read this book. I definately recommened this book to anybody, especially with people who has cancer!

    A tear Dripper

    I really liked this book because it helped me understand what people like my cousin went through while having Leukemia. My cousin died at the age of sixteen and its been five years. I always used to say it was not fair, but after reading this book I understood life. I think anyone who likes to read a good heart felt book should read this. It is really worth while.
