When people ask Richard Casey what’s wrong with him, he likes to reply that he has SUTHY syndrome. He waits an uncomfortable beat and then explains that SUTHY stands for “Somebody Up There Hates You.” After all, what other reason would there be for a 17-year-old to be in hospice care with a terminal cancer diagnosis? If I hadn’t already read John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars, I may not have believed it was possible that Seamon could have written so much humor into this story. Between Rich’s wry sense of humor and his bumbling romance with a girl named Sylvie [the only other teen in the hospice unit], I laughed out loud often enough that my cat gave up on falling asleep in my lap — and that never happens! If you already read TFiOS and need something to hold you over until the movie comes out in June, you will probably enjoy this story too.
