Gives a raw look at dealing with a loved with a horrible disease . good characters sad storyline.
I recently finished reading The Unlucky Ones and when it was done, I had to pause a moment and reflect. This book was not only brilliantly written and breathtaking, it was heartbreaking. I knew it was going to be good. Hell, I knew it was going to be great. But I didn't know it would affect me the way it did. I didn't expect the tears that quietly fell. I didn't expect my heart to clog my throat. I didn't expect to feel the deep pain the characters felt. Yet there it was. From the first chapter until the last I was drawn into one of the most heart-stopping, gut wrenching, palpable stories I'd read in a very long time. The emotional roller coaster felt like I was seeing every emotion for the very first time and I had to take a moment to appreciate it. I'm sure you've read her books and screamed out "You've killed me!" just like I have. But I never realized that until this book, she hadn't even come close. Every time I think back to the pages, to the experiences written, the poignant tapestry that is this story, my eyes cloud with emotion. I won't even give you a recap because I don't know that I could do it justice. I'll just tell you that you NEED to pick this book up.
