Reviews

"Harazin effectively combines typical teen angst with actual life-threatening consequences. The heightened emotions David experiences are felt all the more when considering they may be his last." Kirkus Reviews, January 15, 2015
"Harazin writes David's narration with understatement, giving him both thoughtfulness and conceptual limitations that are plausible for someone with his constrained existence." The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, March 1, 2015
"This story cleverly portrays one extraordinary teen's authentic--and yes, painful--struggle for love, redemption, and independence. In addition to being a writer, Harazin is a registered nurse, and her medical expertise adds a note of straightforward honesty as she describes David's struggle with a rare, but real, disease." Booklist, March 1, 2015
"Harazin adeptly evokes moments of joy, heartbreak, and introspection, all amplified by David's awareness that he is living on 'borrowed time.'" Publishers Weekly, March 13, 2015
"Teens will keep turning pages to learn if David completes his bucket list, ends up in a home, or gets the girl. They ultimately will learn, along with David, that a life without pain also means a life without pleasure and that some experiences are worth the risks." School Library Journal, May 1, 2015
