This book was surprisingly good. There were moments though when the author could of put more details before something where to happen. Like when Megan first sees that her hair is falling out in the hospital they the author just jumps right into the scene and at the end I to be honest stayed crying I felt so sad for Megan but the letter could of had a lot more emotion. Overall I think this is a good book to read

" Gently slipping her hand into her pocket, squeezed of the lid and dipped in her finger. She brushed a thin film of balm across Jackson's lips, his smile, story-telling mouth, now silent, now still, yet moving,as if his flesh were glued to hers for that moment and for all moments."
