I absolutely adored June! She loves pretending that she's living in another era, she feels like a naked mole rat at parties, and imagines what words would look like if they were alive. All of the characters are portrayed with a complexity that makes them completely believable. I felt like I knew these characters personally. There are so many things that I loved about this book that I can't even begin to list them all. The book is sad, as you would expect from a book about someone dying, but there is so much more to the novel than the tears. I’d recommend this to fans of The Fault in Our Stars or anyone looking for an emotional novel with great characters.
