While I did not expect it to be in verse, I was really impressed with the narrator's voice. It was so honest. (Although Daisy liked HBO too much haha). I almost cried, but it was in a way that I wouldn't have minded! It made me more aware of what real life situations might be like, especially in ones where families are faced with medical conditions with no obvious answers. An interesting read!
