This book is like nothing I've ever read before. So unique and so well-written. A Five-Minute Life is powerful and moving and romantic in a way romance should be. It's about family and love and hope. It's heartbreaking, heart-wrenching and hopeful all at once. I was invested in Thea and Jim from the first page and didn't want it to end. It's definitely one of the best books I've ever read.
