Characters are a joy to meet as described by Canadian author, Jean Little. Believable, likeable and true to age depicted, it took me back to my own childhood at that stage. Thoughts, actions, reactions - all the characteristic behaviours with Ms Little's added insights of this threat to Jeremy's life as he'd known it.
Endearing moments between father and son, mother and son; maturing moments captured between brother and sister, Jeremy and a classmate his father had suggested befriending. All work together creating a tender story of loss, growth and understanding of family.

This story did make me shed tears- and no it wasnt pms :), and I thoroughly LOVED it, I bought it after reading it, and read it all the time, I recomend this book to anyone who wants a great heartfelt story, that will trigger your every emotion, and deeply touch your heart. Jean little, the author of many many great books, has created a wonderfull classic, that everyone will love. As most books have an occaisonal, or many, dull parts, This masterpeice- the winner of the canadian library association for children award, has no part that is meaningless or dull whatsoever, it soothes those who have felt the pain of death of a loved one, and gives a clear message to those who havent- I hope you read this novel, I did- loved it and its - in my oppinion- A CLASSIC
She gives an authentic portrayal of the inner life of a sensitive and struggling boy as he experiences his father's illness and eventual death from cancer. I cannot praise Ms. Little enough for her luminously realized characters, and the special complexity of Jeremy's authentic range of emotion. This is a book of emotional wisdom and personal growth that is carefully chronicled with insight and warmth. It is fully heartbreaking, and equally instructive and enlightening.
--A wonderful achievement and a rich, rich contribution to Young Adult literature.
