Let me just start off by saying, this book is a hot mess!!!
First we have Diesel/Killer
We'll start with young Diesel first. He has cancer, I think a disease was just picked and used, could of been anything really because it had no signs, symptoms, or anything other the being told it was a terminal, stage 4 tumor.
We find this out through confusing, reader figure out for your self, flashbacks. There is no time sequences that makes any kind of sense. No days, ages, time separating on flash back to another, NOTHING....
Here is an example:
He's dying any day now, so weak he fight or stick up for him self or Miggie ( the h) he's "supposed" to be having all this weakness, pain, memory loss, but none is ever shown. In the mean time Diesel gets into a fight with Roger the "bully" ponds him til he's bloody. Then they run off and have sex in some out side pull off. He's holding her up. Going to town.
Now if anyone of you have known any one with any type of cancer, this doesn't happen. Not is chemo, radiation or anything else mentioned besides inoperable tumor.
So then when further on to flash backs up to location 1655. No time sequences told how many days after their romp. He's in a hospital bed paralyzed, but can hear. His family is told he's hopeless and handed over to The Institution. What is The Institution we'll get to that in adult "Killer"
So next we're on to the next flashback, no idea how many days, weeks, whatever....
Location 1859. They are professing their love to each other and he's telling her how it's going to be ok when he's dead. (Which he did the chapter before).
Ok now to Killer, adult Diesel. He is now cured of cancer and, you guessed it .... a killer!!

Seriously, reading this book was like being tortured! I do not believe that I have ever given a book a one-star rating before--but I truly feel that this book deserves it. I try and always give at least three stars--even if I weren't all that thrilled with the book, because the author did put work in. However....The storyline of this book was just too weird, incomplete, erratic, and the writing was it had been written by an adolescent. I know that the author try and tell the story through the mind of the characters, but the characters in this book were supposed to be grown (except during the flashbacks they were teens), but I kept feeling like the writing was done by maybe a twelve year old. Maggie's character was so stupid and had me constantly wanting to slap the you-know-what out of her. For example, she goes to work for a company where the boss is a man who used to torment and torture her when she was younger--thereby enduring further torment and abuse as his employee. Her reasoning for "Enduring" him was to eventually move up to working in the lab where she could find a cure for cancer in Diesel's memory? Huh?! As far as I know she had absolutely no skills or education that would have propelled her from an office clerk to some type or scientist? Completely ridiculous! Diesel/Killer's character was dubious at best--and made absolutely no sense. He was the strongest most highly functioning terminal cancer patient that I've ever heard of! Come on! Then, he unceremoniously dies and then resurfaces as a supposed non-human killing machine who wants to simultaneously murder Maggie and have sex with her? Shaking my head.....Read more ›

I wanted to like this book, but unfortunately, I did not. This book was about a teenage boy with a terminal illness. I found the story not realistic. I have watched the effects of cancer on children, teens, and young adults first hand, and I know anyone with a terminal illness such as cancer, would not have the energy that this boy does. I think with more research into the actual illness, the story could have been believable. Besides, the boy had a full head of hair during his treatment?
I also found the story hard to follow. I was not sure what was a flashback, and what was present times. Typically, stories that hop around from the past to the present will work in the time frames they are currently in to the scene, but this did not, so I spent a lot of time trying to figure out how old the characters were in that scene.
There were numerous plot holes that I just couldn't work through how it could be filled in, and there were quite a few grammatical errors that took away from my enjoyment of this book.
Overall, the idea that was behind this story was good, but the execution could have used some more attention.

Started off strong. The synopsis had me hooked immediately and the cover is fantastic. And then I got to know the characters - as much as I could through the writing, anyway. Which isn't saying a lot. I could not, no matter what I did, connect with the leading lady. And then the relationship between her and the leading man...I was scrambling back and forth trying to find the "it" that the author was presenting to make their connection to each other plausible or even likeable. Unfortunately, I never found it. Maggie was such a blah sort of character that I wanted to pitch her out of the book and write in my own female. Killer is the sort of male that insecure, unstable, downtrodden females are drawn to. Perhaps it is just me, but I really don't think that is the kind of person that makes a leading male character. The overall aura of the book was extremely bleak, and don't get me wrong, I expected a book of somewhat bleak caliber due to the synopsis and the title, but this one was so bleak and depressing that there were no redeeming qualities left to make you look up and say, "It was worth it anyway." Because trust me, it was NOT worth it. Oh! And the flow of the conversations was very sporadic and lacked a concentrated flow while there were many parts in the grammar that need some attending to, especially if the book cover is going to boast the words "Best Selling Author."
