The Honest Truth Book Review

M's Review:
When you read this book you will probably think "This kid is crazy". 
Dan Gemeinhart gives a lot of good details and feeling to this book. My 
teacher read this book for a read-aloud in class and had a lot of people crying....
I think this is a good book for 4th grade and above.

Mom's Take:

This is a great story about friendship and the value of life in the face of 
illness. Readers 5th grade to adult will enjoy this book.
It's a good book for opening up discussion about illness, death and choices
that are made. 
Questions this book generated:
Why did the author choose a girl to be the main character's best friend?
What should Jessie have done?
What would you do if you were Mark?
What would you do if you were Jessie?
