This book is by Patrick Ness from the original idea by Siobhan Dowd.
I had heard so many people rave about this book but what put me off reading it was that I knew it was a story with cancer at the center of it. I now wish I picked this up a long time ago.
The story is about a boy who has a family member with cancer. This effects many parts of his life and really haunts him. This book tells us how he coped with that while he tried to carry on his own life.This is an emotional read , very touching , and worth every tear I shed.
The illustrations in the book alongside the story make it a truly special and magical tale.
