Review Copy: ARC from author in exchange of honest review
Dante King is a young twenty something who discovers he’s dying. He won’t live to see his next birthday and time is ticking away to live life before it’s taken from him. With the help of his eccentric and wild-free friend, Wilbur Day, and stubbornly rational cousin, Ethan Knight, the three friends embark on a trip that takes them across Europe, Asia, Australia and beyond.

Dante clings to his past though and the many regrets he has, yearning for acceptance and finally understanding faith. He’s only loved once, and when Daniella Adams comes back in to his life, the pair realise how in love they are – but must battle what they previously did to one another.

This is a heart pulling journey of amazing scenery and adventurous ways, but built on a life that is soon to end. It follows the love of Danii and Dante, finally realising how much they mean to each other but having it ripped away before their eyes. It’s about love and hardship between friends, family, and a dying son’s regret of not being better.

It’s a roller coaster ride of laughs and tears and making the most of life before it’s too late.

This was a beautiful book. One minute I would be laughing, and the next, crying. Matthew wrote a story on what it truly means to live your last days.

I loved the fact that the story takes place in Europe. Being able to picture all the places that they visit to was breathtaking. This part was refreshing, especially after reading a few books taking place in North America.

The most heartbreaking part of this book was seeing Dante's deterioration. Brought back memories of before I lost a friend in 2009 from Cystic Fibrosis.

I wish I had more to say, but I feel that this is a book that a reader needs to experience on their own. Its a beautiful and sad journey that Dante goes through. But it makes you realize that life needs to be lived to the fullest.
