Six Months to Live kindle À Paperback Ú reflectionslisburnltd Õ Thirteen is supposed to be a great age—dances cheerleading boys—she never thought it would also include cancer Dawn Rochelle is about to face the toughest fight of her life—a fight she has to win Otherwise she has only six months to liveHt of her life a fight she has to win Otherwise she has only six months to live I'm not sure how I got a hold of this book except that the title seemed compelling It turned out to be about a girl named Dawn who's diagnosed with acute lymphocytic leukemia at age 13 This book was enjoyable for me for two reasons One I got to learn a ton of words I didn't know how to pronounce and associate them with medical terminology; and two I got very attached to the protagonist as she began her fight against cancer Now this book was extremely depressing No one wants to think about how terrible it must be to think you're getting weird bruises because you're a cheerleader and then find out you've got blood cancer and you have to get poisoned by chemotherapy until it dies just hoping you survive longer than the cancer And no one wants to think about how you get attached to your companion in cancer suffering your roommate and worrying about whether she'll survive too But I loved Dawn's will and her friendship with Sandy and even though I was horrified I appreciated that the author did not skimp on the details of how terrible cancer is If you don't want to read about stuff like the trauma of hair loss the horror of growing so skinny that your own bones can bruise you or the disgusting things chemotherapy can do to you do not read this book I had absolutely no experience with cancer in my family or among my friends so this was a huge wake up call for me and I still think about it sometimes Dawn's psychological fight against cancer was inspiring too She drew pictures of her favorite teddy bear killing cancer cells and used the image to make her stronger Watching Dawn and Sandy beat cancer go to cancer camp with other teens who'd had similar fights make lifelong friends and deal with sobering truths was really sad and inspiring and overall a great slice of human experience

Thirteen is supposed to be a great age dances cheerleading boys she never thoug I remember being obsessed with this author and I realize she just write sad stories often Definitely good for the younger crowd but I think it’s a little predictable in what’s going to happen next Still a super uick read and I would definitely read other books by this author
