"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Do you believe in coincidence?
Marco Anissi is confronted with this question when he wakes up from a comma after a car accident. This is not just any accident. He hit the same light pole ten years ago that killed his beloved Susan.
Deeply believing that Susan is spiritually reaching out to him, Marco goes to get advice from Professor Rangan about arranging a meeting with the recipient who received Susan’s heart. What he hears from the Professor will make the hair on the back of your neck stand up. You will have to read the entire conversation, but at the end of their visit he told Marco that “Susan's spirit will detect your presence.”
Marco learns with Susan’s Mother’s help that Julia Tinsley is the lady that received Susan’s heart. Marco travels from Miami Florida to Tucson Arizona in hopes of meeting her to see if he can get closer to Susan. Following the professor’s warning to take things slow because the recipient might not be very receptive to his needs, he signs up for dance lessons with her as his instructor. I quote what Marco writes in his journal.
“I met Julia for the first time today. Though she was not as I imagined her, I immediately felt a strong connection. Susan’s presence was palpable as Julia agreed to be my teacher despite the fact she only takes advanced students. I won’t build up my hopes just yet. Though it’ll be hard not to, considering that we’ll probably spend a lot of time together in the days and weeks to come. Meanwhile, I’ve got to find some kind of job, something with flexible hours that will allow me to see Julia as often as possible. I don’t want to drive a cab again unless I have no other choice. It would be great if I could work in a restaurant. It might even be fun. Tomorrow I’ll check out a few places, preferably close to my apartment and the Sonoran Ballroom Academy.”
How does Marco reach out to Julia as his instructor in a non-threatening way?
Should he tell Julia about Susan’s heart that is beating inside her?
Should he tell her about the second car accident and his belief that Susan’s Spirit has sent him to meet her?
With Marco’s feelings for Julia growing, he is confronted with the biggest dilemma ever.
Should he tell Julia what he has just learned?
Can he risk this fragile friendship that might develop into something more and bring him even closer to Susan?
With well-developed characters and a story that will tug at your heart, One Last Dance is an unpredictable romance with uncommon circumstances. Ernesto Patino writes this love story from his heart and I especially enjoy love stories written by a man. With forty-four chapters, journal entries and letters this is a fiction that will leave a mark on your soul. You will close the final chapter wondering about the afterlife and the imprint of a donated organ on the recipient and beyond.

One Last Dance
I loved this poignant story between two people who overcame the odds against them by finding each other before it was too late. I, too, believe that everything happens for a reason. The plot had a good flow and was easy to follow. The characters were well-rounded and likeable. I was afraid of how this was going to end. It had me concerned that the outcome could change at any minute. The last chapter was certainly a surprise.
I made the mistake of reading this while at work and needless to say I had red puffy eyes at the office to show for it. I would recommend reading in the privacy of your home. :)
Finds her and falls in love.
Marco seemed a bit naive to me, don't get me wrong I believe in fate and love at first sight but it just seemed to me that he was still holding on to the love he lost. Not telling Julia about the brain tumor was irresponsible and somewhat cruel, even if she herself was dying.
Julia was a true survivor, taking the hand she was dealt with and still trying to live her life.
The ending was a shock that came out of left field for sure. Be prepared for balling your eyes out because this is one sad story.
