One of the most touching books I have read to date!
So my usual genre is Mystery, Thriller, Suspense with a touch of Serial Killer. This book is NOT that. I want to thank Joe Siple for reaching out to me to read his book in return for an honest review. There was something about this book that called me and I am so glad that I read this.
With all his family and friends gone, one-hundred-year-old Murray McBride is looking for a reason to live. He finds it in Jason Cashman, a ten-year-old boy with a terminal heart defect and a list of five things he wants to do before he dies. Together, they race against the limited time each has left, ticking off wishes one by one. Along the way, Murray remembers what it’s like to be young, and Jason fights for the opportunity to grow old. But when tragedy strikes, their worlds are turned upside-down, and an unexpected gift is the only thing that can make Jason’s final wish come true.
This book is the definition of 5 stars! Rarely there comes a book that sticks with you so long that months after you read it you still think about the characters. This book really has all the feels. You will laugh. You will cry. You will feel emotionally complete.
I really can’t recommend this book more. Just please, take my word for it. You WILL want to read this!
