A Time for Dancing

Book Review #6
A Time for Dancing by Davida Wills Hurwin
Rating: Five stars (refer to the rating system on the right)

The book focuses around two inseparable best friends (Samantha and Juliana) who share the love of dancing. Out of the blue one day, Juliana becomes diagnosed with cancer. The moment Juliana discovers she has cancer, both of their lives are turned upside down, but through tears and happiness they fight the battle together. 

I read this book awhile ago, but I still find myself thinking about it. A Time for Dancing is one of those books you'll never forget. One of my favorite things about the book is that it alternates between the views of the two friends, so you get to see both sides of the story.  I didn't know much about cancer, but after reading the book, I had a much better understanding of the disease. A Time for Dancing was so well written I could feel the pain Juliana went through. A Time for Dancing is a book that really touches the soul. It made me appreciate all the great things I have in life and to treasure my friends and family. You get to experience an example of true friendship, love, and even death. I'm warning you, have a box of tissues nearby. A Time for Dancing will be one of the best books you have read. I can't really find any bad things to say about this book; I would recommend this book to anyone. (There is also a just as good sequel called The Farther You Run.)
