as i said i have seen the trailer so i did have some idea what would happen in the book but it was a really good read none the less. its not just a typical book that goes through the effects that such a horrible disease can have on not only the patient but also their family, this questions the difference between what is medically legally and medically moral. it really looks into when put into this kind of situation how stress and fear can change your decision making process and how these uncharacteristic changes impact the people around you.
when reading this you cant help but feel for anna who up until this point has had no say in what has been happening to her and has taken a back seat in the family as all the focus has been on her sister. you also see this in her brother jesse, who although a main character is sometimes forgotten. i really dont want to give the plot away because there are so many things that first of all i so didn't see coming and will really spoil the ending if i give it away (lets just say huge huge twist!!) but this is an amazing read and something that was a little different to what i usually read. it really shows how the situation can sometimes change your thinking.
