Assessment:

Plot: This novel offers a well-balanced look at appreciating and enjoying life despite a friend's cancer struggle. The author skillfully depicts her experiences as an ally. 

Prose: The author crafts the story in an informal, conversational tone that allows readers to relate to and feel comfortable during discussions of a difficult topic that hits home for many. 

Originality: Although this book is similar to memoirs that explore soul-searching adventures, there are unique elements to Lynch's work, such as telling the story from the perspective of a supportive friend and connecting with a loved one's family and friends.

Character Development: The narrator is easy to become familiar with and relate to, as her candid nature reveals all facets of her personality. The peripheral characters, including the author's diagnosed friend, are warmly described.

Blurb: Jennifer Lynch's memoir discusses actively responding to a close friend's cancer diagnosis and serves as a reminder that while challenges may be intimidating, it is always worth the effort to fight through obstacles.
