My name is Alexandra, 25 years old and I'm from Germany. I first read John Green's "The fault in our stars" and then noticed the dedication to Esther.
I just looked this up, stumbled over TSWGO and ordered the book immediately.
I really was touched about all of you struggling for and with Esther. I was touched about her way of thinking about life. About herself living life to its fullest. About her funny comments and her thoughtful ones.
Now, after finishing this book, I also have to say that Esther leaves some impression on me. I haven't known her, I even didn't know about her existence but just by reading this book or watching her videos - although I still don't know her, she touches me deep in my heart.
Dear Esther, you ARE incredibly AWESOME! In your whole human being - you're awesome. I really hope that you now can run around without any oxygen machine, laughing a lot and enjoying yourself (and writing books!).
Dear family of Esther,
please continue having the faith and strength to live life to its fullest, too!
There's nothing greater for a child to experience the love and support of its family. I'm sure (and I'm also sure you know) that Esther was really greatful to you all! Thank you for sharing her thoughts and feelings with this book with the world. Let her friends know her even better and other people, too.
