    1. A sweet story, written well for all audiences. The illustrations were great too and I think it’s fantastic that books like this exist to help people with reading difficulties. I didn’t know when I loaned it that it was specially made but regardless, I’m glad I read it.

    2. 5 Words: Perfect length for a cuppa.Cute little read, and it was quite sad at first, but rather uplifting at the end. There was a lot of emotion packed into the pages.The illustrations were a nice touch, matched fantastically with the story.

    3. Snabb läst på jobbet på Svenska. Svenska titel Stanna kvar.En medelsvår bok stilmässigt. Men ganska avancerad innehållsmässigt. Skulle funka att läsa högt tillsammans med högstadie, gymnasie eller läsa tillsammans i en SF utbildning. Den handlar om Julia och Marianne. Marianne ligger i koma och vet nästan inte vem hon är. Julia är hennes mamma som försöker få kontakt med sin dotter. Boken blir riktigt otäck och spännande när läkarna vill att de skall avsluta de livsuppehåll [...]

    4. Lyhyt, helppolukuinen ja koskettava romaani tytöstä, joka on ollut pitkään koomassa. Marianne on noin 15-vuotias tyttö, jonka perhe käy katsomassa häntä sairaalassa. Perhe puhuu koomassa makaavalle Mariannelle kuin hereillä olevalle ja yrittää toiveikkaasti saada tätä heräämään. Lääkäri ei kuitenkaan anna toivoa heräämisestä. Lukija kuulee samaan aikaan Mariannen ajatukset, joissa tuttu ja tuntematon Marianne vuorottelevat. Kirja on kuvitettu.
