Best part of story, including ending: How Annabel and Enoch fell in love is the reason why I like the story. The plot of a cancer patient waiting to die and a boy who is struggling over his parents death falling in love is so touching. Their journey until the death of Annabel is so romantic.

Best scene in story: My favourite scene in the movie would be when Enoch is introducing Annabel to Hiroshi. Hiroshi kept saying things like "Why does she looks like a boy" while Enoch is translating to Annabel the contrast, he said to her that Hiroshi thinks she is beautiful. I find this scene very sweet.

Opinion about the main character: I like Annabel's attitude in not minding her sickness. Even though she knows that she is gonna die soon, she have this attitude that is positive I like.
