Fly a Little Higher ~ Lura Sobiech

Excellent, Inspirational, Extraordinary!!  Must read this book!!  When I picked this book, I was not sure I would be able to read it without a box of tissues.... Well I read it from cover to cover in one day and only needed a tissue at the very end.  After reading the reviews of others and how emotional they were reading this I thought am I heartless?  Then I finished and thought about the story and realized, I got it!  I understand Zach's message, the story of Hope and an act of GOD's grace, it is so inspiring that if you believe in the power of GOD and HIS works then you will understand where Zach was in life.  Don't misunderstand me, Zach's story is sad, however, his love of life and his faith in GOD brings perspective to his journey in life and dealing with death at such a young age.  It is so inspirational and filled with love that you are feeling sad, but have that peace in your heart that says live, love, laugh even if you only have a short time on this earth. 

Laura, Zach's mom, tells the story of Zach's journey with a very rare cancer (Osteosarcoma) and how he wrote a song to say goodbye,  "Clouds" became #1 and the Hope for everyone to never give up the fight, always keep fighting till the end.  She tells of family, friends, and all the people you touch in your journey through this life.  

I want everyone to read this story and share it!!  It is the best book I have read in a long time.  So much love is in this book that you can't put it down.  Laura did such a classy job telling this story that you want everyone to hear her side of being a mom and dealing with such an emotional rollercoaster of dealing with your son having cancer.   Buy this book and then share with everyone, you won't be disappointed nor will you be able to put this book down.  Thank you Laura for sharing such an emotional and encouraging part of your life.
