Dear Mrs. McDaniel,
Your book Six Months to Live has changed my life. It made me think about how it is unfair and how many kids have to go through with something so bad like cancer. I loved it so much because I could relate to it easily with my life, my friends, and family. I also loved it because it taught me how to look at life in a different way.
It changed my life because you never know what is going to happen tomorrow. You never know what your future is going to hold. It made me realize that you need to live life the fullest today and not worry about what is going to happen tomorrow.
The part where Sandy dies made me think of the time when I lost a friend. She didn't die of cancer she died in a car crash. It also made me realize that I may not see my little sister graduate because of something small like cancer.
This book has changed my life so much that if I would win, I would share it with my family because of this book and because I had what is called a cancer scare where the doctors all think I may have cancer when I was two and last fall. It hurts to know that you may have cancer and never know when it is going to happen again. It feels like the world stops turning for that long minute. I wonder if Dawn felt that way.
I am so glad I read your book because I now know more about how kids or teens deal with cancer. I am now reading the others in the series. I reread pages from the book to see if I can understand it better. I now know how kids and teens deal with cancer.
