I’m going to go eat a taco now, continue to fly high Zach, and may God bless your family.
Laura has written a memoir filled with raw truth, grace, and the steadfast hope that saw her through every parents' worst fears. From Zach's diagnosis, to treatment, to saying goodbye to her sweet boy, her faith and that of her family is a light that shines through the darkest hours and brings inspiration and comfort to everyone who hears her story. Thank you, Laura, for opening your heart to the world and letting the light of hope drive out the darkness of despair.

I'm not religious myself but I still loved reading about how the family learnt to see the positive side and trust god's plan for Zach and that in itself is so full of hope that it taught me so much, no matter what your faith in life is (if any) you can learn so much I believe from this families struggle and how they learnt to cope and see the good in it.
It's a very honest book that you feel connected to both Zach, and Laura especially being a parent myself I felt her pain and the book and learning about Zach's life really helped me learn to live better and appreciate every day we have, not to get caught up in the little niggles of day to day but appreciate what we have right now.
I really love this book, and recommend it to everyone.
It is a well written book and I feel so lucky to now have all these wonderful songs Zach and his band a firm handshake wrote in my life now and I'll always be thankful for.
In her incredibly open book, Laura Sobiech shares more detail behind Zach's story. I read cover to cover in one go, and a bit like the You Tube video above, not a dry eye by the end. Not sentimental, but honest and raw. Zach's legacy lives on in the utterly brilliant 'Clouds' , and his music ( I also bought Fix Me Up - A Firm Handshake) , Laura allows us to see a little of the man Zach was , his life and faith. It was a privilege to read. Every single page.
Like Stephen Sutton here in the UK , Zach 's life seems to compel others ; its often too easy for people to forget the pain and suffering and hardship that walks hand in hand with these inspirational young men. Laura details the family dynamics, young love, , and bravery from those who surrounded Zach in his last days .
Proceeds from the book go towards the Zach Sobiech fund which supports Osteosarcoma research .
