Title: Dying Wish
Author: Margaret McHeyzer
Genre: Young Adult
Release Date: January 8, 2017
I have three major loves in my life: my family, my best friend Becky, and ballet. Elijah Turner is quickly becoming the fourth.
He's been around as long as I can remember. But now he's much more than just the annoying guy at school.
My life was working out perfectly...until it got turned upside down.
Review by Kathy:
I have only read three books that have totally destroyed me emotionally, and this is one of those three. I had to work hard not to fold myself into blubbering mess in front of my family as I read this book, but that did not mean that I didn't keep wiping the tears that steadily ran down my face. This book was so much more than a love story between a boy and a girl, it was a love story of the heart. The selfless love of a girl, who just wanted to make sure that those she loved the most were going to be alright when she left, and she did it with so much bravery, compassion and love that it just tore your heart out. But she also made sure that her story also put the reader back together as well.
This book was so very well written, with so much humor, banter, angst, emotion and love that you felt as though you knew these well defined characters and just wanted to wrap them in your arms and hold them tight and heal their hurt. Alice, Elijah and Rebecca are children in age but they show so much more maturity before the end of their high school years than many adults have with the years they have on these three best friends, "soul mates".
I cannot recommend this book high enough to do it justice. An absolutely stunning read!

Possibly it's the fact there are 26 letters in the English alphabet, and they can create something so beautiful or so empowering they're capable to change our lives.
How important is it that we break suit and stretch our minds?
I like to think of myself as 'unique'. My stories aren't for everyone, and sometimes I may push what you believe to be 'normal'.
Normal is subjective.
I prefer to be known as a person who's never been 'bound by custom' but is 'unique by choice'.
I hope you do read and enjoy my stories.
