I wish there was a 4.5 option, because I really really liked it but it wasn't enough to make it amazing. I feel like the hype I got from others before reading it made me expect more. My friends said it would mad me sob, and I have to admit it didn't but it did make me sad. A note here before I continue, I normally don't literally cry over books but I do tend to rage so I ended up flipping boxes and other items, which actually did happen. I have to say, I have never read a book about characters with cancer before so it was definitely different. If I happen to read more in the future and I decide to re-read this one, who knows, maybe I might just turn it into 5 stars.
