Why is this my WoW?Even though I prefer fun, mindless reads I love these kinds of books! They're always so emotionally packed it's hard not love them even though there usually depressing. They're the best life journeys to read about because they truly are life changing, when your racing against death you can't be anything but profound and truly live life to the fullest (or as much as your health can). Plus I love books from guy's perspective better then females MC and the simple cover is so beautiful and eye catching I definitely cannot wait until I read this!
Goodreads summary:Austin Parker is on a journey to bring truth, beauty, and meaning to his life.
Austin Parker is never going to see his eighteenth birthday. At the rate he’s going, he probably won’t even see the end of the year. The doctors say his chances of surviving are slim to none even with treatment, so he’s decided it’s time to let go. But before he goes, Austin wants to mend the broken fences in his life. So with the help of his best friend, Kaylee, Austin visits every person in his life who touched him in a special way. He journeys to places he’s loved and those he’s never seen. And what starts as a way to say goodbye turns into a personal journey that brings love, acceptance, and meaning to Austin’s life.
