Description

What is the toughest request anyone can be asked to fulfill?

Travis Morrison is a champion diver and one of the most popular kids at school. On the first day of summer vacation, while boating on the lake with his friends, Travis attempts a silly stunt dive that goes wrong. He fears he has broken his leg. Instead, his trip to the hospital reveals he has a rare form of cancer, and to save him, the doctors tell his parents they must amputate. In an instant, Travis’s life and the lives of everyone around him are forever changed.

Travis is determined that he and only he should decide the course of his life. He has a plan, but he can’t carry it out alone. Will he convince one of his friends to fulfill his most important request?

Lurlene McDaniel tackles a controversial subject, probing the issues of personal choice and quality of life.

From the Hardcover edition.

Customer Reviews

Well... ;(

It's super sad and I cried like the whole book! Literally! But it does make you think. Like I said super sad keep a box of tissues by you the whole time.

It was okay.

This is the saddest book I have ever read. The overview of the book is really just the first few chapters. It's not what you would think. This book is probably not what you would want to read if you like those happy ending, living happily ever after kind of reader. This book will really make you think about it's ending and what your choices would have been.

Love Her Books

McDaniel's stories really make you think about how good you have it. Her stories have inspired me to go to college and be an oncologist.
