I got caught up in all the emotions of this last summer but, in the end, I felt emotionally ripped off. Each of the four best friends is a stereotype, at best. Each chapter had a name at the beginning, which I took to mean the events were being seen through that person, but the voice didn't ever really change. McKenzie seems to the main character as she is the one dying of cancer. All the voices seem to be her. There are some big inconsistencies and some trite "realizations" that bring about life changes. I don't want to give away too much, in case you decide to read this anyway, but, if you do, be aware that there are holes in believability in a fairly unbelievable story anyway. I do not recommend this novel.
