    1. Normally I d steer well clear of a book that said right there in the blurb that the hero is dying of terminal cancer Too sad And sure, I cried buckets but I also laughed a lot I fell in love with McKenna s dry wit and with her characters Her writing made me care deeply for both the sassy Emma Lee and the love of her life, the stoic Jack Even Miss Margret, who is present for most of the novel only as a much loved memory, felt real.A great debut novel I m looking forward to seeing what McKenna com [...]

    2. I hardly know what to say about this book I cried almost all the way through, yet I couldn t put it down Actually, I laughed almost as much as I cried So be warned unless you re made of much sterner stuff than I am, you ll need a good supply of hankies nearby while you read.This is an extraordinary book It s a love story, and no, that s not a euphemism for romance, this really is a story about love And not your conventional couple, either Jack was raised by his best friend s mother, Miss Margret [...]

    3. The blurb for this scared me off even though it came highly recommended I do not like to cry ugly I do not want to read a book where the main character is terminal So first off I did indeed laugh loudly and cry ugly.When you know the character is terminal there are really only one choice the author can make that matters Miracle cure or similar allowing MC to live or MC dies at end of book For most of this book I did not know which way it was going to go and I was not sure which I wanted There is [...]

    4. It is difficult to describe how much I loved this book.It breaks my own personal code of literary ethics to read a story without a traditional happy ending but it is something I do about once a decade And this book was worth every heart string it pulled Wow I was drawn in from the first page and couldn t seem to close it even when it ended I am probably not making much sense here because as I already said, finding the right words would be difficult I am not sure I even want to try So I will just [...]

    5. 5 It was amazing.I think that s about right for this book It s only March and I m already sure I won t regret my shelving it in 2015 Top 5 I can t believe it s Dawn s debut book.Pretty normal characters Slightly unusual situation Highly evocative descriptions Earthily believable dialogue Beautifully poignant romance Totally gripping writing.Read it now.It s worth it.

    6. McKenna MagicThis is by far one of the sweetest stories I have read in the past decade Dawn Lee s slow and steady development of her characters had me alternately laughing then crying but always fully engaged Giving me the opportunity and granting me the right to dream within her construction is a gift from the rare writer Thank you, Ms McKenna

    7. What a beautiful book Don t be put off by the blurb It is a very accurate description And yes I did cry ugly Given that I choose books based on them being happy and relaxing one might think that would make me wish I had not read this book but interestingly that is not the case I am normally put off by large age differences but not this time There is nothing major that occurs in the book other than Jack having terminal cancer But Jack is not wallowing in it He decides to live the last of his life [...]

    8. Good readI enjoyed this book very much, although I was a bit disappointed in the ending You know how the book will end very early on but I was expecting of an emotional ending or something that being said it was a great read I will read books by her I loved the way she puts you into the story I am from Alabama I wish Jack had been a AU fan thoughlol I giggled at the part about the Iron bowl if you are not from Alabama you have no idea how hardcore we SEC fans are about the Iron bowl I think we [...]

    10. This book contained some sentences I will hold in my heart for a long time At times I found the story a little too much of a romance novel but I have to say that overall it was worth the time spent reading it.

    13. Sweet love storyI thought it was a sad but uplifting book about the power of love over many obstacles There were times when I became impatient with the repetition of Jack and Emma Lee s daily dialogue about their relationship but it was a nice story about good people.

    23. When Dawn Lee McKenna tells the reader partway into the book what will ultimately happen, I almost put the book down because I didn t want to read something that would certainly make me cry, so I was thrilled when she finished the book with an elegant turn that completed the story as promised, but didn t simply play on my sympathy and turn me into a puddle.But See You was written with great love and affection for her characters, characters that I loved very early in the book I think it would be [...]

    25. Oh My I stopped reading at 91% and spent the next hour trying to decide whether to finish the book immediately or wait, so I could spread the savoring out longer Ultimately, I ended up finishing it the same day I am changed I don t know how else to say it I loved the Forgotten series, and I m already anxiously awaiting book 9 But this one I want Jack s blue shirt to wrap around me so I can continue to feel the way I do this minute The Forgotten series is fun this book is literature McKenna s pro [...]
