Saving Major TomTwins Parker and Charlie are polar oppositesWhere Charlie is fearless Parker is carefulCharlie is confident while Parker aims to pleaseCharlie is outgoing and outspoken; Parker is introverted and reservedAnd of course there’s the one other major difference Charlie got leukemia Parker didn’tBut now that Charlie is officially in remission life couldn’t be. Rating 45 StarsParker and her twin bother Charlie were once very close but Charlie's cancer became a wedge which slowly but surely pushed them apartOne of the things I really loved about this book was Leder's exploration of how Charlie's cancer affected the whole family Because their parents were so consumed with worry for Charlie Parker took it upon herself to be the perfect child She kept a low profile and out of trouble while excelling academically earning herself a scholarship to Harvard and a prestigious summer internship She thought being perfect would alleviate some of her parents' woe but what it did was increase Parker's anxiety which eventually manifested as panic attacksThere was a part of me that really understood Parker's motivation and also her hyper overprotectiveness of her brother My father's cancer deeply affected my family I could relate to the worry and the concern you have for your ailing loved one Even after he was in remission I was very aware of anything unhealthy he did We can't help it because we love that person and we always carry that fear that they can get sick again In that respect I was a lot like ParkerI also empathized with Charlie It was tough to be around him during the first half of the book He was in remission for the second time but he missed a whole year of school His friends were leaving him behind and everyone was treating him as if he was still sick None of them could see beyond his past and his illness and Charlie was just trying to figure out who he was nowBoth Charlie and Parker were trying to decide what they really wanted post cancer Charlie was being reckless while Parker was committing to a life she really didn't want to live Thank goodness they had lots of great people to help them find their wayEven from another continent Em Parker's best friend lent her support And Parker also got support from someone who had been there for her many years ago Finn Finn was probably one of my favorite characters in the book He was trapped in his life by his guilt accepting less than he deserved but he was a beacon for Parker He helped her see that there were endless possibilities for her to exploreRuby who initially came off as a Parker fangirl ended up being a crucial part of Parker and Charlie's healing She managed to be the voice of reason and helped bridge that gap between the twins She was also so easy to loveThis book delivered uite the emotional punch I was crying uite a bit during the first half of the book This family was in so much pain and it dripped off the page Their pain became my pain I was so invested in Charlie's health Parker's well being and them finding their way back to each other that when things started looking up I found myself elatedI am getting a little choked up thinking about the ending because I really loved it It was beautiful and poetic and a little sad but mostly upliftingOverall A wonderful coming of age tale which packed an emotional punchARC provided in exchange for an honest review BLOG | INSTAGRAM |TWITTER | BLOGLOVIN | FRIEND ME ON GOODREADS
