I thought the book was okay. I thought it was okay because it really scared me and there are things in the book that kind of grossed me out while reading it. Mainly for older teens. I finished the book in two days, I really couldn't put it down.

Really good book. I liked the relationship between Lizzie and Connor and how they helped each other in different ways. I also really liked how you got to see a couple letters that Connor wrote to her throughout the story. Wasn't a fan of the ending because I feel like there should have been more and that it shouldn't have stopped there but overall this was a really good book.

I'm long past Lizzie's age, so it's hard to comment on that aspect of her story. Yet I've been through a severe, life-changing illness, and thought the author dealt well with that, and how alienating it can be. Watching Lizzie come out on the other side and learn what she's able to do, instead of focusing on the few things she no longer is able to do, makes for an uplifting young adult novel. Lizzie also learns some great lessons about grown-up friendship and love. Not a preachy book, but it ought to be helpful to a teen in Lizzie's predicament.
