The seventh graders at our school read this book every year and then are graced with a visit from the author. Mr. Waller's semi-autobiographical memoir is a relatable story about being a young teenager that allows readers to put themselves in his shoes as he is diagnosed with and undergoes treatments for cancer.

I was substituting in a middle school science class where the assignment for the day was to continue reading this book. The students also had to fill in a worksheet as they read. I commented that the book looked interesting. The students encouraged me to read it, so I did. I finished it that day and was glad I read it. It is a compelling fictionalized version of the author’s experience with cancer, chemo and radiation, as well as the effects all of this had on his family and friends. There are a lot of life lessons in this tale that these students seemed to appreciate. ( )
