This is a very hard review as the author’s story is so very heart-wrenching.  Marina Keegan was an extremely bright young woman with a great future in writing ahead of her and her life was cut short.  The book is a collection of short stories. It was the Goodreads Choice Award for Nonfiction in 2014 and a Waterstones Book of the year nominee in the same year.  The book is good.  It is well written.  I think Ms. Keegan had a very promising future as an author.  I enjoyed all the short stories, but in my humble opinion it was not more than a 3/5 star book.
