Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

Out of control - that's how Lacey Duval feels in almost every aspect of her life. There's nothing she can do about her parents divorce, there's nothing she can do about the death of her young friend, there's nothing she can do about having diabetes - that's what Lacey believes.
After a special summer at Jenny House, Lacey is determined to put her problems behind her. When she returns to high school, she is driven to become a part of the in crowd and win the attention of gorgeous Todd Larson. But Lacey thinks fitting in means losing weight and hiding her diabetes. She starts skipping meals and experimenting with her medication - sometimes ignoring it all together.
Her friends from the summer caution her to face her problems before catastrophe strikes. Is it too late to stop the destructive process Lacey has set in motion?

This book was absolutly incredible. I really connected with it.You see my sister was diagnosed with juvinille diabetes about a month ago she is 3 years old. She has to get to insulin shots a day and get her blood checked four times a day.It helped me to understand what diabetes is all about.Also, helped me to understand how important it is to take care of it. I think that everyone should read this book.

A Kid's Review on November 27, 2005
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Even though I don't have diabetes, I get what Lacey was going through with. I'd give anything to be with the in crowd, have the most popular boy in school be my boyfriend, and drop a few pounds. Every girl in high school wants that. Who wouldn't? It's just harder and more dangerous to achieve when you have diabetes.

This was the first "One Last Wish" book I've read with Lacey, but I really liked it. Even though I didn't exactly know what happned with Lacey and Jeff the summer before.

Lacey is 15, and really wants to fit in. But she has diabetes, and is afraid of what kids will think if they know. She decides to keep it a secret, and just pretend she doesn't have it. Lacey wants to be thin, because she has an absurd notion that she isn't. To get thin, she starts giving herself less insulin, and sometimes "forgets" to give herself insulin. She's sure that when she's thin, the popular group will fully accept her. What she doesn't take into consideration is her health.

Then Jeff comes into the picture. He transfered to college in Miami. Lacey has so many mixed feelings for him. She wants to be with him, yet she doens't.

This book is good, even though it's too short. And I wasn't completely satisfied with the ending of Jeff and Lacey. Even though we all know it's inevetable they'll end up together. And because the next book says so, but you know... lol

A Kid's Review on October 28, 2004
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Lacey Duval feels out of control in almost every aspect of her life. She can't do anything about her parents' divorce. She can't do anything about the death of one of her closest friends, and she can't do anything about her awful disease. It's plain to see that Lacey is struggling in her life, daily, and she thinks it is a total wreck. She hates that she has a disease, and is trying to loose weight, but the disease makes her gain more weight than the weight she loses. So she goes to durastic measures and tries to deal with that problem herself. You will have to read the book to find out what happens to her.

This was a great book and I think everyone would enjoy it. Lurlene McDaniel did a great job of writing it and she did a good job explaining things that happened in the book. I encourage you to read this great book because you will learn something about what really happens to people when they have the disease that Lacey has. ONE LAST WISH is one of the best books I have ever read, and I, once again, Encourage you to read the this wonderful book.

I have read almost all of the books by Lurlene McDaniel and have read all in the series that this one comes from. I have battled with whether or not i want people to know that I have a conjenital heart desies and the emotions depicted by all of the charactors in the book are real and honest. The book shows how people who are sick feel, we bond to others who have problems and aren't normal by society's terms. I applaud Ms. McDaniel's efforts to provide people like me an escape to a world where people understand and a chance for those that are lucky enough to be well a chance to understand a little bit about where we come from. I first read Six Months to Live in the fifth grade and it changed me forever, i finaly understood that i wasn't alone, and i'm not. These books bring many a sense of hope a sense of belongong and most of all a sense of friendship which is the most important thing in life.

AS YOU MIGHT ALREADY GUESS. IM A LURLENE MSDANIEL FAN. FOR THE LAST YEAR I HAVE STARTED READING HER BOOKS. SHE IS SUCH A GREAT AUTHOR. I THINK ALL HER BOOKS ARE GREAT IF SHE'S THE AUTHOR YOU GOTTA READ IT. I ACCIDENTLY READ HER BOOK I'LL BE SEEING YOU LAST SUMMER. IT WAS SOO SAD AND I STARTED TO FALL IN LOVE WITH HER BOOKS. MY SCHOOL LIBARY HAD MANY OF HER BOOKS SO I STARTED READING IT ALL RIHGT AWAY. IT ONLY TOOK ME A FEW MONTHS. ALL THE DAYS OF HER LIFE IS A GREAT BOOK. I STARTED IT IN CLASS AND FINISHED IT AT HOME. IT'S REALLY REALISTIC AND IT REALLY SHOWS HOW SICK KIDS WANT A NORMAL LIFE. I CAN'T HELP BUT FEEL SORRY FOR LACEY.

Lacey feels her life is out of control, but there is one thing she can control. this story deals with not only having to realy on medicine (which i totally understand), but it is also about social acceptence while trying to hide one's imperfections.

Lulene McDaniel wrote this beautifully. I've read this book over two million times, and it written beautifully (plus the information helped me get a 'B' on a paper on diabeties)

If you want to now about diabeties and social accepentance read this book.

This book, All the days of her life, is the most annoying book I've ever read. Lacey is the most annoying character. All I wanted to do while reading this book was yell, "Open your eyes! You are a diabetic! Deal with it!" Lacey's passage through fitting in with the "In" crowd with diabetes is a very, very irritating story. I would not recommend this book. I cannot understand why anyone would like it.
