My Review –
This is a fictional story inspired from the real life events. The story is very emotional at times. The Rick’s character is relatable to me in some ways. Like sometimes things are going so odd in life and we can’t do anything but to survive. The things were we just can’t live the simple happy life like other’s do. And we start criticizing the people around us or the situations. Ultimately, we fall on the spiral of negativity from where get up again is like impossible thing to do. But if we have strong determination of something, we can do anything. Nothing is impossible if we try. The book teaches many important things about hard life and strong determination and most importantly the relationship values that is much bigger than any health problem. I found it very encouraging and inspiring story. Some stories just touch our heart and inspiring so well. This is so true with this story, it is touching and inspiring as well. Language is simple and easy to understand. Presentation is good. The beautiful cover page and catchy title truly great. The cover and title both match with the storyline. Story plot is quite amazing. The inside the heart of hope meet our expectation of great read. It’s really worth reading. I would like to recommend to all.
