Fly a Little Higher {Book Review}

   This Spring I read "Fly a Little Higher" a book about a Minnesotan boy, Zach Sobiech. A young man who got sick with Osteosarcoma which is a pediatric bone cancer. This young man's story though filled with plenty of heart ache is very uplifting as you read about (from his Mother's point of view) how he dealt with the pain and struggles with an upbeat attitude, a love for family and friends and seeking a stronger relationship with God.

   One of the neat things that happens as Zach's family was trying to help him deal with the cancer and the possibility of death, his mother suggests that he can make a difference in the lives he leaves behind - maybe right letters to give to them. Letter writing didn't seem right to Zach but he loved music and so he wrote songs instead. One in particular, "Clouds" shared with the world his thoughts on leaving and death and shared his love for those he would leave behind. 

   It was inspiring to read about this courageous young person. The book is well written and interesting. It will make you smile and make you cry. I recommend it.
