A Season for Goodbye, by Lurlene McDaniel

In the book A Season for Goodbye, by Lurlene McDaniel, there are three girls named Chelsea, Katie, and Lacey who are spending a summer at Jenny house. Jenny house is a retreat for youth, in other words for young teens with life-threatening illnesses. Each of the girls had a life threatening illness. All three girls are much more healthier than before.They spend a summer at Jenny house because they know what it's like to be fighting an illness that can possibly lead to death. They go to Jenny house to help other young teens cope with cancer or any other illness. All three girls have to come face to face on making decisions that will separate them. It is up to them to keep their friendship strong.

My opinion on this book is that it is very good. It made me feel sad at the same time. It had a lot of sad parts to it. I really liked how the author put in a lot of details about the characters and how the author talked about each of the girls. I liked everything about this book. Not one part I did not like. I really enjoyed reading this book. I think that if I introduce this book to my friends, they will all enjoy it as much as I did. It made me think of many people who are going through what some of these girls went through. Overall, this was one of my favorite books.
