Dawns courage throughout the series is inspiring to all sorts of ages! This series calls to God and to us in a way only those who have luckemia know about, it shows what a child/teen/adult are going throught when they develope a type of disease. I recomend this to all sorts of ages! Not just teens!

I loved this book. It was depressing, but I want to become a doctor one day so if you are interested in medicine, read it!

If you think that the first four books in the series were as good as they can get, then you'd be surprised how much better the 5th one is! A true heart-wrenching story about pure love to live and just life!

I personally think this story is amazing. i know how it would be. i was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer at the age of thirteen also. and i just pray it doesn't come back at seventeen like her's. I love all of Lurlene McDaniels books, so if your reading this, read all of her books! they're amazing!

The book 'To Live Again' is a fantastic book. It is about a seventeen year old girl named Dawn Rochelle. When Dawn was only thirteen she was diagnosed with luekemia and at fourteen she had a bone marrow transplant. Now she is seventeen and has had a stroke. She has partial paralysis to the left side of her body and a droopy left eye. She can't walk without the help of a cane. She does not want anyone to see her, not even her best friend Rhonda. This book is about life and love and the will to keep going on even if it is difficult. That is what I love about this book. It says that no matter what happens you should never give up even if your life is never going to be the same. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes books that deal with real life.

How many chances do you get in life?? Dawn had gone through some rough times in her life, and she never thought that she would have another chance. It all came true until that one day when they heard what the doctors had to say. This book is a great book! It is a hard book to ready.. when you know someone that might have gone through the same thing... It is sad. I can tell you right now before you read it that if you have a soft heart then you will cry no doubt.

This is a story about a very strong young girl. She made it through cancer and a lot of treatments for it. Now she is facing another challange. Dawn has had a stroke! She is having a hard time dealing with it because she cant use her left side at all. Will Dawn be able to pull through alive? Read this story about an amazing girl you will love it!

i really loved this book. i cryed because it was so sad, i could feel her pain even though i'm not physically her. i wish she would write one more book, to find out, how she did in college, if she and her dream guy ever ended up togather forever. it would be nice to know if she's going to live forever, and that she'll findly find peace.

All dawn Rochelle book's and Lurlene McDaniel book's have been a great inspiration to me. Even if i havent felt the pain that Dawn feels Mcdaniel expresses her feelings greatly.

If I could give this book 100 stars, I would. I mean i read this book in less than two days. I thought it was going to be ok but it was GREAT!! If you have to read one book this year, read this one!!! I think that the author should come out with another book in this series.

Dawn Rochelle is a strong girl with a lot of hope towards her cancer. This book is one of the best teen fictions for young girls and guys. This book will give you tears of joy and happiness, but you will be happy that you read this.

i may not know what pain she went through getting over lukemia and now a stroke but i do know she shows me the power of being brave and moving on.I just hope that lurlene mcdanial will put a next chapter to dawns story and hopefully we'll find out if dawn goes to collage and finally desides to get married. When i began reading this book i didn't think it was going to be good, but out of my surprise it was, it touched my heart. I felt dawns emotions but not the pain, but i knew it was going to be a happy ending. (i just hope she keeps jake he sounds like a great guy...lol) thanks lurlene for showing me something through dawns eyes. I hope you bring the next chapters into our reading. (oh yeah i think a movie should be made about this book.)
