What is the toughest request anyone can be asked to fulfill?

Travis Morrison is a champion diver and one of the most popular kids at school. On the first day of summer vacation, while boating on the lake with his friends, Travis attempts a silly stunt dive that goes wrong. He fears he has broken his leg. Instead, his trip to the hospital reveals he has a rare form of cancer, and to save him, the doctors tell his parents they must amputate. In an instant, Travis’s life and the lives of everyone around him are forever changed.

Travis is determined that he and only he should decide the course of his life. He has a plan, but he can’t carry it out alone. Will he convince one of his friends to fulfill his most important request?

Lurlene McDaniel tackles a controversial subject, probing the issues of personal choice and quality of life.

I like it

I love this book a lot, even if I didn’t read it on the device I’m rating it on this device! I like how it has multiple points of view, and it has a different ending and meaning than other books I’ve read! I can’t help but tell all my friends about it! :)

Love Her Books

McDaniel's stories really make you think about how good you have it. Her stories have inspired me to go to college and be an oncologist.
