Due to the mature content of this book, I would recommend it for ages 17+

Neena is 12, and she is dying.

Having never known her father, she puts an ad out on craigslist, in the hopes that she will be able to find him.

All she has is his name “Paul James”, and that he was known as Epic.

Neena wants is to meet her dad, and get to know him before it’s too late.

The craigslist goes viral, and soon Epic is found.

We follow the story in both past and present and discover that love is limitless.


I bought this book over 5 years ago, and I have never read it until now! Big mistake. This was just so beautiful, sad, heartbreaking, and yet heartwarming.

Yes, I was sucked in from the start.

While the book starts off as Neena’s story, it’s also the story of her parents Clara and Paul.

This is also a reminder to hug your loved ones and tell them you love them.

Life is too short to be subtle.
