At fifteen most guys only have to worry about the style of their shoes, or mustering up the courage to talk to the pretty girl sitting across the room. Gabe Perkins isn’t most guys. After being diagnosed with a terminal illness, he begins to make friends with a girl so ethereal that he starts to question his own sanity.
The concept of this book was an interesting one, which is why I was originally drawn to it.
There are a lot of obvious grammatical mistakes such as commas in the wrong place, the misuse of words - such as 'your', and other issues along those lines. Then there's some content issues - the dialog, the narrator giving detailed explanation of conversations that happened between two people when he was a toddler - as if he were there participating in it, mixing up character names, the list goes on.
Despite that, I did enjoy this story - but it needs work. There's some pretty heavy stuff going on in this book. The author is able to portray the emotions pretty well. Normally when a book has this many editing issues I cannot finish it, but this story was able to keep me captivated.
I give this 2.5 platypires. I would read it again and would be willing to increase my rating if the author made the necessary changes.
