Wow what an amazing read. I would’ve never picked it up if it wasn’t for my book club’s pick of the month. This story is so thought provoking and heart wrenching it’ll have you feeling all of the emotions. 

Imagine if you were able to know the time frame of when you were going to die. Would you look? Would you want to know your loved one’s time frame? This book reiterates the message and lesson that we should all live our lives like we are going to die tomorrow. I loved the idea of everyone wanting to leave their mark on the world whether the measure of their life was long or short. This book seriously makes you think and wonder and I cannot wait to discuss it with my book club at the end of the month! 

I recommend this to anyone no matter what season you are in life it’ll remind you to LIVE and LOVE. We all can leave our mark on the world. I will be thinking about this book for a long time. 

I’m not sure if I would want to know what my fate was. I think I would have too much anxiety but then again I worry with the unknown of me and my loved ones. I really am not sure what I would do!
