Jill's Library: The Bumblebee Flies Anyway

Though it's been difficult to find much time for any reading that isn't part of a school textbook assignment since the end of the summer, Jill's Library is still open and active, and it's high time for another book suggestion....another bittersweet, with-you-for-life book suggestion:
The Bumblebee Flies Anyway by Robert Cormier tells the story of the young patients of a mysterious medical center known as "the Complex."  They're all haunted by their own personal ghosts and medical conditions, but the plot gets progressively more complicated as it goes on, twisting into a story about relationships, the will to live, and, of course, love.  It's not exactly a book for the faint of heart, but, if you're open to tears and loss, it's a must-read.
