Reader reviewed by Crimin

Becky Zaslow has leukemia.  She has to sit through long hours of painful tests and chemo, losing her hair and, ultimately, losing her life.  She has only one thing that helps her through it all -- her zebra friends who come to her during her hardest hours to make light of the situation with jokes and a phrase that keeps Becky going.   Think Zink.   And when she does, shes whisked away to the faraway lands of Africa, where she doesnt hurt or feel weak anymore.

When I first read this book, I cried.   When I read it again, I cried.   And when I reread it, I cried again.  This is probably the most heart touching and sad books I have ever read and will continue to keep on rereading.   It is one of my favorite books out there.  Everyone should check it out.
