Book Description

You don't know me, but I know about you....

  I can't make you live longer. I can't stop you  from hurting. But I can give you one wish, as  someone did for me.

It's hard for Anne Wingate  and her father to accept the doctors' diagnosis:  Anne is HIV positive. Seven years earlier, before  blood screening was required, Anne received a  transfusion to save her life, and the blood was  tainted. Now Anne must deal with the inevitable  progression of her condition. When an anonymous  benefactor promises to grant a single wish with no  strings attached, Anne decides to spend the summer on  a ranch out west and live as normally as she  possibly can. The summer seems even better than she  dreamed, especially after she meets Morgan. But  Anne hasn't confided in Morgan about her condition,  and when her health begins to deteriorate, she  suddenly leaves the ranch.

Is there time  for Anne and Morgan to meet again?

5.0 out of 5 stars One of Lurlene's best December 5, 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
As the title says, this has to be one of her best. She gives Anne, a young girl at the age of 16, a great personality. Anne is diagnosed with HVI, which was transferred to her through blood that was ment to save her life when she was 10. As her 'One Last Wish' she goes to a ranch out in Colorado where she meets Marti, a young mislead girl who becomes her friend, and Morgan, a wild cowboy that keeps a mysterious secret. She soon becomes very close with them, especially Morgan, but she can't forget her diagnose. How long will Anne have to live?

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best books i ever read! January 3, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I'v never been very into books, Untill one day,last year, when a friend of mine told me about a book that she read and suggested that i read it. I told her i don't really like to read but she said that it was one of the best books she has ever read, so i told her i would read it. I checked it out from our school library and soon i was reading the book and enjoying it. I liked the book so much. I then began to read other Lurlene McDaniel books and loved them just as much. I just recently finnished Sixteen and Dying, and it was such a good book. it had a little of everything in it, romance, humor, friendship and everthing else that makes a great book the best! I will admit that i did cry and if you have as such a weekness for romance and illness, as do I, then you probably will too! i can't wait to read "Reach for Tomorrows" where we can learn more about Morgan Lancaster and what becomes of him. i really want to thank Lurlene McDaniel for writing these books, i've read a bunch of them and truly enjoy them! i hope you do too!

5.0 out of 5 stars The one that got me hooked... July 15, 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
When I was ten, I read this book. Now I'm twenty-one and I haven't missed a Lurlene McDaniel novel since... not to mention the fact that I've scoured the Internet for every out-of-print book she's ever written.
This novel hooked me immediately with its touching story and ability to convey the truth about what life is like for some unfortunate individuals. Too many times in our sugar-coated society, teens are unaware of the horrors that exist in life. McDaniel has the innate ability to create the awareness that is so desperately needed by teens while still entertaining the reader as well as not scaring him or her completely.
Emotions run rampant in everyone of McDaniel's novels; but this one is a good starting point because it's incredibly gentle in its realities. Many adolescents may not comprehend the fact that 16-year-olds get AIDS; but this novel introduces those facts and leaves the readers hungry for more. And, as we all know, awareness is the best preventative action of all.

When Anne Wingate was 10 she was givin a blood transfusion to save her life when her and her mom were in an accident. Anne survived but now at 16 she hasn't been feeling well. She goes into the hospital for tests and while there she finds out that the blood transfusion she had to save her life, was now to take it away because the blood she recieved was tainted. It has made her HIV positive. When Anne Recieves her One Last Wish she chooses to go to the Broken Arrow Ranch. You'll have to read the book to find out what happens when she meets Morgan. Happy Reading!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Sixteen and dying April 18, 2005
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Dying at a young age

The book I read was Sixteen and Dying. It was a really good. The book is a bout a girl she is Sixteen. She went to the doctor and found out she had aids. The she had to spend her spring break in the hospital. For the summer she went to a camp with her dad she loves to ride horses and this camp had horses. Her first day there she met some one. Her name was Marti. Marti spends her summers out there working there. Then Anne meets this guys named Morgan . Morgan has a crush on Anne. Annes dad told Morgan that they could not like each other. Anne was really up set. One day Anne cut her hand and Morgan was there. He tried to help her. She said no I don't need your help. Because of her HIVs. Things I like about the book was that it was kinda romantic. Morgan was nice to Anne and was a good friend to her.

This was a really good book to read. That's if you like romantic book.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE BEST! November 1, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
What can I say, except that it is simply the best. It will keep you up all night, wondering about Morgan and Anne. And when you finally fall asleep you'll dream all about the wonderful, well written story by my favorite author, Lurlene McDaniel. I really recommend any book written by her, especially "Sixteen and Dying", and "I'll be Seeing You", and "A Time to Die". Another great book written by her would be "Reach for Tomorrow" but you would have to be up to date on the One Last Wish novels to really get into it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely brilliant! November 12, 2005
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I just finished this book yesturday, and I am searching for more. It was my second Lurlene Mcdaniel book, and all I can say is that this may be the best book I have ever read. I could not put the book down. The story just draws you in and I think most people can relate to the story in one area or another. WHen I put the book down I cried, and if it can touch me like that, I think it can touch the millions of people who will, or have, read it. I just fell in love with it, and now I am rereading it. It was just absolutly brilliant.

More About the Author

I was born in Philadelphia PA, grew up (mostly) in Hialeah FL, graduated from the University of South Florida, Tampa FL (go Bulls!) and currently live in Chattanooga TN---I'm an American citizen by birth, and Southern by the grace of God.

I have a brother, three years younger, married, and mathematically gifted. I am totally without math skills.

The books I write, the topics and subject matter, grew out of my firstborn son's diagnosis of diabetes at age 3.
Infinite reward that comes to me from my work.... when a grown reader lets me know that reading my books inspired her to seek a profession that helps others. I have wonderful letters saying, "Today I graduated from nursing/medical school."

Now that's a gift of joy!
