Title: Dying Wish
Author: Margaret McHeyzer
Genre: Young Adult
Release Date: January 8, 2017
I have three major loves in my life: my family, my best friend Becky, and ballet. Elijah Turner is quickly becoming the fourth.
He's been around as long as I can remember. But now he's much more than just the annoying guy at school.
My life was working out perfectly...until it got turned upside down.
I was once again blown away by Margaret McHeyzer's writing. She is the queen of emotional roller-coasters and tackling the tough issues.
Alice is your typical teenager: having fun with her friends, going to school, following her dream ballet dancing and falling in love with Elijah. She is looking forward to the rest of her life and achieving her dreams when it all comes crashing down around her.
I completely fell apart whilst reading this book. It was a poignant and emotional read that will make you consider the fragility of life. Alice shows incredible poise, grace, courage and generosity in spite of her own circumstances. This is the first book of the year that has truly made me feel, broke my heart and warmed it at the same time. I really want to give this more than 5*. It was a truly exceptional book.

Possibly it's the fact there are 26 letters in the English alphabet, and they can create something so beautiful or so empowering they're capable to change our lives.
How important is it that we break suit and stretch our minds?
I like to think of myself as 'unique'. My stories aren't for everyone, and sometimes I may push what you believe to be 'normal'.
Normal is subjective.
I prefer to be known as a person who's never been 'bound by custom' but is 'unique by choice'.
I hope you do read and enjoy my stories.
