Everyone's heard a picture is worth a thousand words, but when you only have a few months to live it can be worth so much more. Noah Prescott wanted nothing more than to be your everyday typical 15-year-old boy, but with stage 4 melanoma, he was anything but normal. Depressed and completely ready to give up on life, he has lost all interest in the world around him. That is until he meets Glenn Green, the dying boy with a sunny disposition. Unable to accept Noah's pessimistic outlook on life, Glenn sets out to show the younger teen that life might not turn out how he pictured it, but it can still hold so much beauty. That is, if you know where to look.

Glenn reminds me a little of Augustus Waters. This story is off to a good start.

This is such an interesting perspective and I'm already in love with this book.

Noah is a bit bitter, although he kind of has reason. Glenn is one of those glass half full, cheery even though I'm dying people. I love them both.

No, I can't promise anything but I hope and think that your happily ever after lies after your death if it is that inevitable

Why have you written a depressing story.... A story should be motivating and amusing
