That is my humble opinion on it. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. I meant nothing major or standout. There is reason to live and there is reason to take care of yourself. When I read the emotions of her father about losing his son, my heart broke. Panabaker gets to stretch a little in the acting work.
And Sam, quite obviously crushing on her, doggedly hangs around, and is partially responsible for giving her the mother of all silly ideas. And at first her brother's awesome. Almost brought me to tears several times and that rarely happens for me. The first couple of chapters in the book were very boring but essential to the story. Darcy has found her brother. So Darcy gets her big hero of a brother killed after he was being a bit of a jerk like older siblings tend to be.
So right now he is stuck doing triks with Darcy in her bedroom. Searching for David's Heart By. It takes several more chapters for her to finally come around and realize that she shouldn't actually hate the person who now has David's heart just because she's the reason her brother is dead. So the most cherished one in there is a picture of David Deeton. Sam and Darcy usually do escape artist tricks and David just tells them to be safe. So, so touching and heart-breaking. When his sister gets so mad and runs off, of course he will go after her,but when he is running he gets hit by a car and is fatally injured leading to death.
To view it, This was a very special story. She realizes that she is twelve years old and not a kid anymore. I read the story in one night and cried through most of it. The beginning of the story takes place in Appleton, Wisconsin. David and Darcy are like soul mates, he is always by her side. After catching a ride with a donkey ,now Sam and Darcy have to catch a ride in a pitch black trailer with dusty and old furniture. David and Darce grew apart and fought all the time because of her.
Sam is Jewish and is not afraid to show it. But what she received were valuable lessons in the grace of others. The next setting is Clarksville Tennessee. The kids were so lifelike to us -- we felt like we got to know them as people rather than characters in a movie. Her perseverance and struggle are portrayed beautifully and it is touching to see her surprise once meeting the boy who has the heart that once belonged to her brother.
David's girlfriend, Janye, wants him to go after her, but he won't. In Crystal City, Missouri, Darcy Deeton Danielle Panabaker struggles to cope with her beloved brother's death. However, the experience helps bring the shattered family back together and start to heal. Then she meets the boy who received David's heart in an organ transplant, and learns that life truly does go on. A touching family movie that worth seeing with a good company. Dunno if that's the right word, but the plot really pushes itself forward.
Then the daughter feeling like she didn't belong anywhere. Beautifully written in the frame of mind of a child experiencing loss. Darcy loves her older brother, but her world is crushed when he dies. Dee Dee runs out of the park with tears rolling down her face. The grandma, being sick now, had given them lists of books to read.
Her family has no money, her father is always in pain, she is made to go visit her grandmother in the nursing home who cant speak or commuicate after her stroke, the mother works double shifts, the beloved son and brother dies, they no longer go to church and are not much like a family. Sam and Darcy usually do escape artist tricks and David just tells them to be safe. It brought me back to when I was young. This book is 160 pages. Once the action started I couldn't keep the book down. With Sam's Hanukkah money they sneak on a bus to Florida.
