What I thought:

If you like YA contemporary novels then I would check out The Half Orphan’s Handbook. This is another book that deals with loss and growth.

Lately, I haven’t really read many contemporary coming-of-age young adult books. There’s a reason for that and that’s because they are all so similar. But I am glad that I changed things up a bit and read this one. It’s always sad to me when people have to go through cancer. Especially people who are so young. But I’m always a little unsure why I read books like this. When I was twelve I actually lost my mother to cancer so I thought reading books on this subject would make things harder for me. But in a weird way, it always makes me feel a little bit better. I know these books are fictional but they are kind of based on things that actually happen and the fact that I know I’m not alone always makes me feel a little bit better. I just wish I had known someone back then that had gone through the same things that I have.

Another reason I have always liked books like this is that I have always wanted to create my own bucket list. Even since I was little I have always wanted to make the most of my life but I have always been nervous and scared to do it. Books like this kind of give me courage. It also makes me realize that I shouldn’t wait until someone is dying before doing all of the things that I want to do.

Have any of you guys read this book yet? If so what did you think?
