Abstract:

Told, at seventeen, that he has leukemia, Eric crowds his dreams for the future - college, sports, love - into the short time he has left.

"Eric was seventeen when he heard the doctor's verdict about the disease that wanted his life. At first he and his family could not believe it. For Eric was the picture of everything a youth should be - a champion athlete, a splendid human being, vibrant with energy, and loved by all who knew him, family, teachers, and friends. The doctors could promise little. They could do as much as was medically possible. Eric had to do as much as was humanly possible. But if the odds were not good, they were good enough for Eric. Given the choice between life and death, Eric chose to live. This is Eric's story, as told by the person who lived it with him all the way--his mother" -- back cover.

Greatest book ever written

by rushisgood (WorldCat user published 2010-08-04) Excellent Permalink

Seriously, It definitely is the greatest book ever written. I first read this book when I was 13 years old. I have reread it at least a half dozen times. If you or someone you know has a fatal disease, you should definitely read this book.
