This is a great example of nonfiction. It‘s so well written that even though I wasn‘t sure I was interested in the subject matter at first, I couldn‘t put it down. The author is a doctor and discusses end-of-life care. He cites research, his own experience with patients, & his experience with his father‘s death. It‘s a powerful book, driven by real examples of hospice and nursing care, mixed with the history and cultural differences. Recommended!

This may seem an odd choice for #AdventRecommends, but every year I seem to know someone who loses a loved one near the holiday. Ten years ago the day before Thanksgiving, my grandfather entered hospice when his lung cancer metastasized to his brain. He died December 4. My mom and I spent that period working, visiting him, & reading this book. I‘ve never read something or knew there was something that could be so helpful in understanding ⬇️

megnews the death process. It was remarkably eerie to read things described on the page as fairly universal as my Poppy went through the process. It was helpful in understanding, removing fears, and letting go. I recommend this book to those losing a loved one. It brings some peace to the process. 12h

I would use this in a classroom to help demonstrate and foster the importance of friendships and imagination!

The first chapter of this book is an introduction to the main character, Jesse Aarons. Jesse‘s character is relatable to that of children for multiple reasons. Many kids can relate to having their eyes set on a goal, and people and other factors holding them back. From this first chapter, children can see different and similar family structures.

I enjoyed this book a lot! I would use this in a middle school classroom setting even for earlier ages. The language used can be challenging enough and the story, funny and engaging!
