i wish i could have knwn you but after reading your book and meeting everyone who loved you i feel like your my friend.
and your dream will come true. i just know it and its all going to be because of you.
One of the best books ever!
I truely do believe this is one of the best books ever written.You can see right into Michael's life as he struggles with cancer, which threatens to kill him many times.The book is set up in a "diary" format, with actual exerpts from his grandmother's diary.At the end of the book, there are lyrics to Michael's songs on his solo CD (purchase at [internet address]) as well as the thoughts/situations that inspired him to compose each song.There are a lot of rare pictures in here, too.The book is not all sad cancer stuff, though.You also read about his life as a singer/actor and his "normal" school life.The book ends on a happy note that he is finally recovered, but unfortunately, that isn't how Mike's story ends.He died of complications in January of 2000.This is a wonderful story of a heroic boy who would do anything to help the world.I recommend it wholeheartedly!This book is good if you are a fan of Michael (or 2Gether) or even if you just want to learn about cancer -- the book discusses the different medicines/treatments/etc.
An inspirational masterpiece...
I love this book~ I ordered it from his website in 2001 and his story has totally inspired me to make a difference and has turned my life around, I now aspire to become a pediatric oncologist. I think this book is great for all ages! There are alot of facts but it wasn't confusing at all... I totally understood what was going on. I especially recommend this book to teenagers not neccesarily with a health problem but because these days, teenagers need a positive role model in life and Michael a great role model to follow! This book talks about various stages throughout his cancer and it has a lot of personal feelings and family reactions. This book ends with Michael triumphantly winning his struggle as you may be familiar. I honestly think that is will inspire anyone! He is very much my hero~ Even with his tragic death, I still consider him #1. He is the world's greatest...
I think this book is great, it tells about his life and how much of a brave person he was or is. If you are a 2Gether fan or just a Michael Cuccione fan then you need to own this book.
The Most Heart-Warming Book
"Nature's first green is gold, Her hardest hue to hold. Her early leaf's a flower; but only so an hour. Then leaf subsides to leaf. So Eden sank to grief, So dawn goes down to day. Nothing gold can stay."
This is far most the most heart warming book I've ever read! I have read it many times and I still cry I cried for Michael on the day of his death, I remembered back when my friends and I had backstage passes to see them and Britney Spears I was 15 at the time and now I'm soon to be 17, I remember how sweet and caring he was and so funny he remined me of my little brother who sadly passed away two years before Michael, My little brother would be 13 this year, I still can't believe that they are gone but I still remember that their not really gone they are still here with is in our hearts and I hope that you will go out and buy this book because it will bring you closer to Michael, God Bless You Michael and Brian! we will be 2get+her again!
Love Always and Forever,
