A bad sick.A sick that people never get better from.This makes the story a lot more interesting because he has different challenges that normal people don’t have.

The parts of the book that I didn't like were how the author made Mark go through a lot of tough times,for instance,being sick,like I have already mentioned.But then again that is kind of what makes the book interesting.A good thing was that when we found out that Mark is going to climb a mountain,this,like I said before,makes you want to keep reading. Another good part about the book is that the author provides us a bittersweet ending,not a nice happy ending where the characters go to neverland and live happily ever after.

Overall The Honest Truth was a worthwhile read.i would rate it a 9/10 because the author,Dan Gemeinhart,did a phenomenal job putting together this book other than a few minor issues,the few I mentioned above.I would recommend this book to anyone who is willing to experience the sadness Mark has to go thru. Be ready for the ride this book is gonna take
