Review |
Ae-ran Kim’s My Brilliant Life is a heart-rending story of a coming-of-age curtailed

  • Much like John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars, the novel narrates the story of a hopeful child asking end-of-life questions
  • The desires and desperation of a child with a rapid-ageing disease are peppered with bursts of humour
