Had me in stitches! -

Although I feel this book is aimed towards a younger audience, I thoroughly enjoyed every page and did not at all expect it to be as funny as it was! I love the character of Gracie, she is so relatable to all ages as she discovered that she is in fact not dying and living her life to the full which leads to the moments that left me in stitches!

Surprisingly it touches on things that I didn't expect but I like this, as although it can dampen the humour, it is important that stories tell reality, it make me like it even more! I read this very quickly as it was like I was reading a comedy show, so hilarious. I have passed on this to my 14-year-old sister who has started the book and already laughing and can't wait to read more. A must read for all ages, lighthearted but just realistic enough with incredible humour!
