This book is about a sick girl and it's especially interesting to read because it's in email and message forms.

This is a cute quick read about a boy and girl that meet in kindergarten and become fast friends and realize that they love each other as they grow older.

I enjoyed the book and definitely cried during the sad parts (and yes there are many sad and happy parts)

This would be good for teens or anyone that likes YA books

I loved the unique way this story was told-through emails, instant messages, doctor reports, diary entries, video tapes, phone conversations etc.

The story discusses the relationship between two young schoolmates, Melinda and Jesse. Melinda aspires to be a ballerina and Jesse wants to grow up to do something worthwhile with his life-he just doesn't know what yet.

We follow Melinda and Jesse through a divorce, moving away, Melinda's ballet education/career, as well as her leukemia, and how it influences Jesse's decisions as well as his life.

Heartbreaking and powerful all at once.
