Everyone was talking about this book, and we too couldn't wait for the Movie to come out! My girls asked if we could do the premier like we have with the Twilight and The Hunger Games Movies. So we went to the Theater to get our tickets and was planning on coming back latter, but the girls wanted to stay in line. And I must say it was nice that it was summer and they were able to stay and I could actually leave and come back latter, normally they're in school and I sit there all afternoon (reading of course) and they come up after school!
Lexi and Erica waiting in line!
We keep a blanket in the trunk for just such occasions!
They got in line at about 1:30 in the afternoon. We had several friends coming as well. All the girls would take turns sitting in line, walking around the Mall, getting Ice Cream, Etc. You have an immediate comradery with the other people in line and get to talking to them as well. If you've never done a Premier, it's actually really fun!
Just part of our group as it grew throughout the day!
I think our group ended up with something like 13 people on the last count. The More The Merrier! Having read the book, Maddie brought an entire box of Kleenex, as it is really a tear jerker! And we were all very glad she did.
About to be let in!
And you will definitely cry in this one. Because "That's the thing about Pain, it demands to be felt!" And "You don't get to choose if you get hurt in this world . . . but you do have some say in who hurts you." But it's also funny; "We're just friends!", "Well, she is, I'm not!" And "the world is not a Wish Granting Factory!" And it will make you think as well. Since "Some Infinities are bigger than other Infinities!" And "Sometimes the Universe just wants to be noticed."
"I fell in love the way you fall asleep;
slowly and then all at once."
This really is a good Movie and a good Book! And it brings to mind two truths anyone who, like me, has ever lost someone they love much too young to cancer. And that is 1. Cancer Sucks! and 2. The time you spend with the people you love is Precious! Don't waist it!
Okay . . .
