I will not pretend to know what it's like to be dying or have a child with cancer but I would hope that I would encourage my child to be honest. As a parent we should support our children's choices, as long as they are legal, so I would hope I would support their choice to end treatment to live out their lives as I know that's what I have requested of them.
I depend greatly on reviews so I am deeply disappointed that none that I read gave a head's up.
I was only able to get to 70% and stopped before I threw my iPad at the wall. I was pretty disgusted with mother and child.
Claire has made a promise to finish ticking off her friend's bucket list. Hope never survived the cancer. Just like her name, she lived until her last few days, full of hope and desire to live life to the fullest. She shared her deepest thoughts with Claire... and also her bucket list. So now it is up to Claire to complete Hope's list on her behalf.
Running away from home to start a new life, Claire is amazed to find a job on the Harvard campus right away. Baristas do not make uddles of money, but it is enough to pay for rent and food. Claire is off to a great start living to the fullest. In comes Theo quoting Woodsworth and a connection is made that will last forever.
I was mesmerized by this story. It is a deeply felt courtship, full of the exuberance of first love, and the thrill of discovery. Theo and Claire are the two halves that make each other whole. They connect on a cellular level, rarely seen in lovers so young.
As Theo helps Claire finish the bucket list, they share their deepest secrets and desires. All Theo wants is to make Claire happy. This is when the bottom falls out and the two lovers are separated by a maze of deceit and half-truths.
This story is a masterpiece. Seldom has a book affected me as much. I cried my eyes out and could not put it down. I know I will re-read it someday... I just cannot handle it at this time. I felt myself become Claire and I experience all her pain. Her spirit kept driving me on. Her loss became mine. Her love for Theo was so real to me that when things started spinning out of control, I mourned for the loss.
This is a must read, but like I warned, keep those tissues close by.
She has a new roommate, a job and a handful of friends. She keeps her list safe waiting for the chances to come so she can do those things Hope wanted to do. The one thing Claire isn't ready for is Theo. Working on a college campus provides much business for the coffee shop, enter Theo. Claire and Theo have a special chemistry and I really enjoyed getting to know them and seeing where their new found relationship would bring them. I was mesmerized by this story. It is a deeply felt courtship, full of the exuberance of first love, and the thrill of discovery. Theo and Claire are the two halves that make each other whole.
