I can not express in words how i felt about this book. i lost my best friend several yesrs ago and also have lost two friends to cancer. I'm not sure you can ever replace a best friend and i thought what you wrote from both Sam and Jules viewpoints was so on target.
how much input did you have on the movie, i was sorry to read reviews that said it wasnt true to the book as i was picturing a movie in my head before i knew one existed, and thought how many oscars it would win. look very forward to reading the second book and then your new one too.

thankyou for responding, i asked my friend to look for the book at barnes and noble. i did find the quote, maybe we are talking about the same one.. i will surely let you know my thoughts on the reading versus the watching.

lisa - i'm not sure exactly which quote- but i think it was the screenwriter's, and not mine.
the quote at the end of my book is from sam at the services for Julie. I won't tell you what it is in case you read the book.
I'm very sorry about your friend.

i have yet to read the book a time for dancing, but i did see the movie, mainly because.. well.. im a dancer haha. anyways, im not sure if the quote at the end of the movie is also in the book but i am looking so hard for it to give my friend some inspiration after her best friend passed. its the quote about having regrets that sam uses. please let me know.. and i do plan on picking up the book soon, if i could pay off my library fine hehe.

A time for dancing is my absolute favorite book ever!I laughed and i cried but never wanted to put the book down. I now am reading the sequel the further you run. These books no boubt in my mind are the best books ever!!

Katie - I'm glad you liked it...
Karen - knowing a young dancer who fought cancer and bravely continued to work in her dance company was the inspiration for ATFD. I had to try to figure it out for myself - I didn't even intend to write a book until I was far into the story.
Thanks for asking!
