People may mention how many boxes of tissues they go through while reading this book, how they cried and cried and felt overwhelmed by the story of Esther Grace Earl. But that's only one way to go through this book. I went through it smiling. Smiling and laughing and, yes, even feeling ridiculously happy because Esther has finally been able to share her story with me and I am so grateful and so glad that she has been able to do that.
In the book John Green says to Esther, "I feel very lucky to know you - and as far as I have seen , to know you is literally to love you." And reading this book not only helps you get to know Esther, but it forms a bond with her, and to be honest you might as well call it love because it's so strong.
I am 16, the same age Esther was when she died and I love reading fantasy books, sci-fi, adventure etc. but really sometimes it's the books about real people that are wonderful, emotional, and simply beautiful that impact us so much. I am so glad Esther got her wish to be an author. I am honoured to be a part of it.
Esther means star. This star won't go out.
