My Thoughts

When I started this book and found out that is was about a mother (Kerri Sullivan) who's son has a terminal disease I wasn't sure I was going to be able to read it.. because I'm a very emotion person. But I figured I would give it a shot and kept ready. I was immediately drawn in by Kerri's determination and witty remarks. She is definitely not afraid to speak her mind. She is determined to get millionaire Nathan King to donate money to the research company that is working on the cure. Kerri initially thinks it will be easy to get him to agree because his son had the disease and passed away from it. My initial reaction to Nathan was that he was the stereotypical millionaire, he doesn't care about anything. I think some of it has to do with losing a child, cause after going through something so hard why would you want to let anyone else in?

As I was reading the book I found myself laughing at the banter back and forth between Kerri and Nathan. She is so open and honest, while he is serious and very closed off. It made for some interesting conversations. I've been blessed with a healthy child, but while reading wondered if that was really how parents felt.. that if they put their own life on hold and essentially stopped living that their child would in turn be able to live.

This book was a nice balance between happy times and emotional times. I enjoyed it and look forward to reading more from this author.
