Book Review: Regine’s Book, a teen girl’s last words by Regine Stokke
In Autumn of 2008 Regine Stokke became incredibly ill and was eventually diagnosed with cancer, more specifically a form of Leukemia. She started a blog to share her story and it garnered a huge following with its heartbreaking and sincere look at life with cancer. Her goal was to share what it is like to live with an illness, but as too often happens with cancer, it became a record of her last days.
