It’s a beautiful memoir of a very difficult journey. I’m not a religious person so personally have a hard time with the “God makes everything ok” mindset but the Sobiech family are obviously true believers and their faith got them through. As with most amateur written biographies, I think the writing isn’t very compelling and at times gets bogged down in detail. The author does infrequently step into a Marge accent which sounds false. Definitely worth a read.

Beautiful memoir about Zach Sobiech, the 18-year-old from Minnesota who wrote the upbeat and inspirational #1 iTunes hit Clouds. Zach died last May of osteosarcoma, a rare form of cancer. His mom Laura wrote Fly a Little Higher (which is a line from Clouds) about Zach and the countless people around the world he touched with his grace, humor and positive attitude. In a raw and vulnerable style Laura reveals the family's struggles and grief; however, her strong faith sees her through. I read this book in a few days; it's remarkable. — Kim B., Ridgedale Library

An uplifting and inspiring novel! This is not a story of a boy dying but a story of what happens when one lives each day as if it's the last. A must read!
