Summary:

Diagnosed with thyroid cancer at age twelve, Esther (Persian for “Star”) Earl was an exceptionally bright and talented — but very normal — teenager. She lived a hope-filled and generous, outwardly focused life as she navigated her physical decline with grace. A cheerful, positive, and encouraging daughter, sister, and friend, Esther died in 2010, shortly after turning sixteen, but not before inspiring thousands through her growing online presence. This unique memoir collects Esther’s journals, fiction, letters, and sketches. Essays by family and friends help to tell Esther’s story, along with an introduction by award-winning author John Green who dedicated his #1 international bestseller The Fault in Our Stars to her.

    Very moving and emotional, be prepared with to cry! I became deeply invested in this family and enjoyed hearing about their ups and downs. It was very difficult to know this story didn't have a happy ending however with the sadness comes a positive message of love, family and being with those you love and who love you back.
