    Romance/Fatal Illness So, for those who love cheesy romance novels, McDaniel has produced yet another, perfect cardboard cutout. There's not really much else to say. We meet both of our protagonists, who are dying of terminal illness, but of course they are meant for each other, and insist on marrying despite the odds. What a pity that - with a terminal illness - they are doomed to die. It's a quick read, but you will have to stomach nasty stereotypes, bad prose, and sickening sentimentality.

She's popular at school, she close with her group of friends, she's dating the school's star soccer player. Everything is going her way. Until she faints in class and learns that a brain tumor has taken up residence in her head. This is a bit of bad luck for our girl, April. But it does allow her to meet Mark. While her soccer star boyfriend couldn't handle her being sick, Mark understands. You see, he has cystic fibrosis, so he's very familiar with hospitals. And the fact that April is sick doesn't put him off for a second. Mark is book boyfriend material, for sure. He is smart, and sweet, and funny. He flirts like a champ. He encourages April through everything. And he knows exactly what he wants out of life: to live it. He was given a death sentence when he was a child, so he embraces every day to it's fullest. The ending is a real tearjerker, but well worth the read.

The tumor had been small and dormant ever since she has it taken care of at age nine. now it's back and it is causing her to have to go through radiation. April has a boyfriend named Chris, but at the hopsital a good looking guy named Mark Gianni introduces himself to her, and starts flirting with her. Soon enough, they start hanging out and getting to know each other, and each other's condition In this novel April Lancaster gets sent back to the hospital to have the tumor in her brain checked. The tumor had been small and dormant ever since she has it taken care of at age nine. now it's back and it is causing her to have to go through radiation. April has a boyfriend named Chris, but at the hopsital a good looking guy named Mark Gianni introduces himself to her, and starts flirting with her. Soon enough, they start hanging out and getting to know each other, and each other's conditions very well. When April's relationship ends, her and Mark become inseperatable. The only problem is that Mark has cystic fibrosis. At the end of the novel Mark asks April to marry him and she accepts. While on his death bed, Mark and April get married and then he passes away. In my opinion the novel is a great read, and very easy to finish in one sitting. The way McDaniel writes keeps the reader intrigued and makes then want to continue reading. The plot is common, but not too everyone, so readers, like myself, are excited to see the outcome at the end of the novel. I think the author's purpose in writing this novel is to prove that love should not be based on looks or other traits that we as humans cannot control. Love is a strong connection between two people that is hard to break. In this case even though April knew Mark was going to die, her love for him kept her at his side up until his death. The title of the book is "Till Death Do Us Part" and there is meaning right there in the title. The theme of the novel is that love can make one do crazy things. In this novel April gives up her friends, and former boyfriend to devote all of her time to Mark. She knows that his CF will kill him and she stays with him, knowing that it will just hurt her in the long run. April met Mark in a hospital and did not like him at all when they first met. Things changed when he would not leave her alone, and they soon fell in love. Each with a problem, only one with a fix.

    This Romance novel by Lurlene McDaniel is about two people with physical and mental challenges meeting and falling in love. April Lancaster is 18 years old when she is admitted into the hospital for a growing brain tumor. There she meets Mark Gianni who suffers from cystic fibrosis.

April Lancaster is 18 years old when she is admitted into the hospital for a growing brain tumor. There she meets Mark Gianni who suffers from cystic fibrosis. Mark likes April but April's boyfriend is still in the picture. April's boyfriend dumps her though when she gets diagnosed and so she and Mark can pursue a relationship. The two get engaged, even though their parents are not excited about it and plan to marry until the accident. There is a sequel to this book called For BEtter, For Worse, Forever, but I don't care to read it. There are some differences with this book than with other YA books. The protagonists are both older. I think that McDaniel had to do this in order to have their love and engagement be believable. THe reader of Romance may enjoy this book because it does add an additional twist on the classic Romance (having both people be sick) but other than that, I don't see a YA audience connecting with the book.

    I think this was a very heartbreaking true love story. Throughout this whole book Lurlene helps portray the part of how not to judge someone by whats on the outside but rather by what's on the inside. In this book a young girl learns that she has cancer for the second time and while she is at the hospital getting tests she meets a young man who has CF. Upon meeting each other, he tells her that he will marry her some day. As April keeps receiving bad news, she turns toward him for comfort. They I think this was a very heartbreaking true love story.

I recommend this book to anyone who likes love stories and those who need to renew their perspective on things.

I think that this book is inspiring and really relates to readers because people would face different challenge each day and sometimes they have to make an important decision in their life. Making an important decision is hard, making a right important decision is even hard. Because making a decision can affect someone's life, when we make decision, we don't want regrets, but life is not the way we planned.

But it changed after she met Mark Gianni. They met in the hospital, and Mark is awaiting death.

Rushing in to marriage with a dying man who sometimes came across as too possessive bothered me. I am a parent myself and her actions made me cringe. I just couldn't "feel" this book.

    This book is so good. It's a romantic,and sad book but it's really good. My favorite part about it is when Mark first saw April he fell in love with her. And stopped by her hospital room and introduced himself. He told her that they should get to know each other, sense she was the girl that he intend to marry.

    Occasionally the writing in this book got a bit annoying, but I could look past that a bit just because of how much I adored the plot. This was one heart breaking novel, and it only gets more depressing when you read the sequel. I absolutely loved Mark. He was so cute and dorky, and I found the way the two of them met to be unbelievably cute. The book was maybe a little too absorbed in the romance factor, but was a bit evened out with April's worsening sickness and Mark's cystic fibrosis.

    It was ok... I thought that it was just a little bit sappy and predicatable, but I am not a huge sappy romance book reader. I thought that McDanile created interesting and vibrant characters that were engaging. As a story line? Didn't like it so much. I found that it was a very predictable plot that I could have guess five pages in. I don't really like those books, I like to be kept guessing (same thing with movies). I thought that the end was touching where she showed up in her wedding dress, b It was ok...

The main character April Lancaster has just been diagnosed with a brain tumor that holds cancer. It is in a spot where they just can't go in and remove it. It is also too big to. She is in the hostpital when she meets a young man named Mark. Mark has Cystic Fibrosis and he is going to die from it and he knows that. April and Mark end up getting married right before he dies, but he doesn't die from CF. You'll have to read the book to figure out how he dies.

    This book is definitely worth reading. It is a romantic young adult novel that takes the reader through the normal trials of teenage romance. True to her style, author Lurlene McDaniel adds in a tale of woe that leaves readers sobbing by the end of the book. It is this aspect that gives depth to the story and succeeds in readers begging for more. This book is a must read! As a future English teacher, I would suggest this book for students age twelve to fifteen.

    As always Lurlene weaves a beautiful tale of tragic young love. Prepare to cry as yet another young person is diagnosed with a horrible disease and must struggle to over come. But April not only must overcome her own illness, but that of the boy she loves. I cry every time I read one of her books. They are short reads but full of feeling. Emotional roller coasters all the way.

    I love this book! I went to a small school and we didn't have many good books but I seen this so checked it out. I was so addicted to this book my mom had to take it away so I would sleep. Ever since then I've almost read all of Lurlene McDaniel's books.
