Reviews for This Star Won''t Go Out:
"Just so you can't say we didn't warn you, This Star Won't Go
Out will make you sob (unless you don't have a soul).
But it will also make you smile, as one of those rare books
that will change the way you look at the world. The true
story of Esther, a teen with cancer, this book is a compilation of
her essays, short fiction, journal entries and family photos. You
might not expect a 16-year-old with a terminal illness to be funny,
but Esther is cleverly so while eschewing bitterness.
Author John Green got to know Esther after meeting
her at a Harry Potter convention, and they formed a meaningful
friendship. So meaningful, in fact, that he dedicated The Fault in
Our Stars to her and wrote the foreword to this book. Just
released, This Star Won't Go Out is one book that will
stick with you long after you finish it."
