Summary (from Goodreads): Austin Parker is on a journey to bring truth, beauty, and meaning to his life.
Austin Parker is never going to see his eighteenth birthday. At the rate he’s going, he probably won’t even see the end of the year. The doctors say his chances of surviving are slim to none even with treatment, so he’s decided it’s time to let go.
But before he goes, Austin wants to mend the broken fences in his life. So with the help of his best friend, Kaylee, Austin visits every person in his life who touched him in a special way. He journeys to places he’s loved and those he’s never seen. And what starts as a way to say goodbye turns into a personal journey that brings love, acceptance, and meaning to Austin’s life.
Austin Parker suffers from Leukemia and is on a mission to help out those who seem to have lost their way. Since he is not going to make it past the age of 18 he feels that those who can live on should do it happily, not doing drugs and acting like they have given up on life.
I really liked this book a lot. It got to me more than I thought it would. I cried twice while reading this, and it is definitely an easy read. I love it when a book has so much emotion put into it that you yourself cry. I would definitely recommend this book!
