Comments Anthem for Jackson Dawes

  • Thyago | MrsMargotBlog

    mrs-margot/A story like many others that can sin by lack of intensity, lack of detail to help plunge us into their lives and not wanting to get out of there. No leaves, of course, to be a story that brings us to tears, especially because this story portrays to children with cancer and if we have the facility to put ourselves in the place of others easily are transported to the described hospital and that makes our heart go very little.    I enjoyed reading this, could have been better, but i [...]

    I chat to Celia Bryce about her writing, this novel and her next book hereAnthem for Jackson Dawes was a deceiving book. I looked at its gorgeous cover and its tiny little spine and thought ‘there’s no way you’re going to make me cry’. Yet, I did wipe away a sneaky tear or two as this little book burrowed its way into my heart. Don’t you just hate when that happens?This could easily have fallen into the stereotypical category, but the gorgeous prose and touching exploration of first lo [...]

    Oh, man. I cried! There's the kind of crying that's simply because you read something sad. However, there's also the kind of crying that you go through when you read something that implies something sad. That one's even worse than the first. Since this book's about cancer, I experienced the second kind maybe even more than the first. I don't know why, but I needed to read this book after having read the summary. In fact, I put everything else down just so I could read it in one night, two sittin [...]


  • A Book Vacation

    To see my full review:bookvacations.wordpress/20The title and synopsis of this novel basically foreshadows the dismal events that will transpire within the pages, but even so, it’s still a poignant look at the fragility of life, refusing to leave readers unscathed. This is the story of cancer. Of beating the odds. Of watching good friends succumb. It’s a story of joy, heartbreak, and remembrance. Though relatively short, it packs a punch that will definitely leave readers reaching for the ti [...]


  • Michelle (Fluttering Butterflies)

    This review was originally published at Fluttering ButterfliesI'm not entirely sure what to make of Anthem of Jackson Dawes by Celia Bryce. I hadn't heard very much about it before I bought the book and I went into the story without any real indication of what the book would be about. Anthem for Jackson Dawes was first out last year in hardback, and the paperback was published this month by Bloomsbury.And I think when I finished Anthem for Jackson Dawes, my overwhelming feelings were that I like [...]


  • Mia Searles (The Muses Circle)

    This review and more can be viewed over at my blog: The Muses CircleMy Review: Anthem for Jackson Dawes is a quiet little novel that had the potential to pack a strong punch with its challenging topic and themes, but somehow fell short on its delivery. Characters weren't fully developed, and the story itself was just coming together when the author decided to wrap things up quicker than you can blink. That being said, there is no denying Celia Bryce is a talented writer. The poems at the beginni [...]


  • Stephanie (Stepping out of the Page)

    Anthem for Jackson Dawes is a book that I was very pleased to receive for review - it really sounded like something I'd enjoy. Though the subject matter is rather difficult, I do enjoy reading about real life issues and I was interested in seeing how this YA book turned out. Teenage cancer has been explored in several extremely popular books, namely The Fault in Our Stars, Before I Die and My Sister's Keeper, so Bryce really had to try hard to give us something new and something with a strong em [...]

    I won an Uncorrected Proof of this book from Hooked on Books who are part of the Bloomsbury group i believe. After getting the book and reading the back cover i thought oh boy this is going to be one of those books that make me cry. For this reason it was a few weeks before i decided to read it.The book starts off with Megan going into hospital for her first bout of chemo after finding out she has a brain tumour. While there she meets the only other teenager in attendance in the children's ward. [...]

    3.5 Stars!Anthem for Jackson Dawes is a novel with a lot of heart. It’s heartwarming, sweet, and very endearing. But, admittedly, I felt a bit distant from the story as a whole. I loved the characters and the plot, it just seems that I couldn’t put as much emotional investment in the story as I have done with others. I have been pondering about this for a while and I still haven’t come up with why I had this problem. This novel does have some really good qualities though.If you read the fi [...]

    Originally posted on Once Upon a Bookcase.I picked up Anthem for Jackson Dawes thinking I was in for a really good, quick, sad read. Unfortunately, that's not really what I got.Megan Bright has gone into hospital to get chemo for her brain tumour, only to discover she's being kept on a kids ward with babies and young children. The only other teenager on the ward is Jackson Dawes, who is constantly appearing when he's not wanted, annoying the hell out of her. But they may be the only people who c [...]


  • Rosie Donson

    An inspiring novel by Celia Bryce about two teenagers suffering from cancer. Anthem for Jackson Dawes not only draws upon the difficulties of coping with being in hospital and away from family and friends but also the hardships parents and other cancer patients have to endure when a death occurs on the ward.Although reasonably well written, the plot is unoriginal and too fast-moving; one minute Megan hates Jackson and in the next chapter she loves him. I think if Bryce had made the novel longer [...]


  • Ulises

    Qué libro tan subestimado. Es una historia que parece muy simple, y que a medida que avanza se va volviendo más compleja, retratando todo lo que implica el cáncer no solo para quien lo padece, sino que para todo el que le rodea. Me sacó lágrimas de cocodrilo, tanto la alegría como el dolor y el duelo se sienten muy cercanos. En absoluto pretencioso o que parece esforzarse demasiado por ser memorable: en otras palabras, sencillamente me encantó.


  • Lois Brewer

    A bit of a predicable ending

    This looks like it's going to be a sad one. I was sent a packet of kleenex with my copy. :(.

    When we first meet Megan Bright, she has just been admitted into the hospital to begin her chemotherapy treatments for the tumor in her head. Upon her arrival, she runs into the only other teenager in the children's ward, Jackson Dawes. He's all energy and smiles, which annoys the very angry, bitter Megan. She doesn't need a new friend and she certainly doesn't need this boy to bother her. Little does she know that this seemingly annoying boy will become her salvation. Jackson is exactly the per [...]


  • Selan

    So, a story about a girl who is a cancer patient, meets another guy her age in the cancer ward, falls in love with him, recovers from her cancer, family drama, etc. You know, this sounds pretty familiar and I haven't even read a single John Green book in my life.I'm tempted to say that the romance was a bit crap. Which it was. But the protagonist is a 14-year old girl who is suffering from cancer and Jackson (the boy in her ward) is a source of optimism for her, someone to help her get through t [...]


  • Natasha

    The saddest book I have ever read, so far, anyway. Touching, very realistic, and different from the classic teenagers-with-cancer books that I know of. Each character showed many different characteristics, some surprising, some hilarious, some that made me fall in love with their character. When I first discovered that the narrative was in 3rd person, I didn't think that I would feel as connected to the characters as I had hoped for. Yet, even though it was in 3rd person, I still understood the [...]


  • Zoe

    I've read many 'teenage cancer love stories'. Many. I respect the subject but since it has been written about so much - and always with the same plotline, It takes genuinely good writing to make me dish out the 5 stars. Poorly 13 year old Megan is having to spend some time on a cancer ward as she is due to have an operation. She meets Jackson - a fellow teen with cancer and a bond forms between them. The blurb suggests they fall in love but this doesn't really seem to be the case. They have a cr [...]

    The other day, I went on a roller coaster. It was a vertical drop one and I was feeling slightly queasy. I looked at my dad and asked "Why do we do this?" It was then the ride started. The feeling of exhilaration was intense. As we were getting off I said, "Yeah. I remember now."That's what these heart-breaking books are like for me. They break my heart every time, sometimes so hard I'm in shock for ages. But these books are so string and powerful and emotional - so real and overwhelming. So, ye [...]

    BOOK REVIEW by Michelle 18th February 2013: RATING: 4.25 JACKSON STARS!Megan Bright has cancer. I knew this book was going to make me have a cry. Being a mum of three kids you always hope they stay healthy, but the truth is a lot of kids aren’t healthy. They get cancer. Babies get cancer. Toddlers get cancer. Young kids get cancer. Teenagers get cancer. This hospital does not have a ward for teenagers, the non adult age patients, so Megan found herself in a ward with babies aged through to you [...]

  • Tiffa (The Readers Lair)

    I was sent a copy of this book by Bloomsbury publishing in exchange for an honest review.Megan Bright has just been diagnosed with cancer and is admitted to a children’s ward in hospital to undergo treatment. She’s sullen, upset that it’s messing with her life and annoyed by all the dancing elephants on the walls and babies on the ward. Megan’s so secluded and frustrated that she doesn’t notice Jackson Dawes until he runs into her; literally! Whilst everyone is star-struck by Jackson a [...]

    Genre Recommendations: Not really sure, I partly liked this but it's not one I found really worth reading.Check out my blog for the full review with GIFs :DIt should have been an emotional overload of a bookBut it wasn't. It's about cancer, guys. Touching stuff & I do feel sorry for Megan, I really do With cancer & put on a baby's ward? But I feel like it wore off. There was only so much relating you could do to someone who just seemed Cold. I don't think it's as she's a horrible charact [...]

    Review posted at Amaterasu ReadsI feel like reading this book is like setting myself up for a painful heartbreak, but I still read it. I feel like rubbing the spot where my heart is when I finished reading.I know what you're thinking. Two kids with cancer. At some point there will be death. It's inevitable. You might even think that this was straight out of a John Green novel, but Celia Bryce just made a little nick on my heart and it ached in a familiar yet different way. Crafting such powerful [...]

    Die Handlung:Megan hat Krebs. Und das nicht genug, kommt sie auch noch auf eine Kleinkinderstation, wovon sie reglich genervt ist. Als dann auch noch dieser Jackson mit seiner guten Laune daherkommt, ist ihr eins klar: Wo bin ich hier nur gelandet? Doch mit der Zeit merkt sie, dass Jackson doch eigentlich gar nicht so schlimm ist, wie sie gedacht hatteMeine Meinung:Der Schreibstil ist flüssig und lässt sich gut lesen, wenngleich er an manchen Stellen noch ein bisschen umständlich ist, da sehr [...]

    Fourteen-year-old Megan Bright isn’t happy that she’s stuck in a children’s ward to undergo treatments. It’s bad enough she has a brain tumor, but now she has to spend her days with crying toddlers and hyperactive children. The only other teen in her area is a slightly annoying, but kind of cute guy named Jackson. Though Megan tries, it’s hard to resist Jackson’s bright personality. He’s an old pro, having undergone several cancer treatments himself. His love of music and stories w [...]

    luminous-wordsCogí este libro con cierta reticencia: por un lado, la sinopsis me parecía sospechosamente idéntica al famoso libro escrito por John Green, Bajo la misma estrella (libro que lamentablemente no he podido leer aún) y por otro, soy una llorica empedernida y estos temas complicados suelen ser demasiado para mi. No sé si tendré razón en lo primero, pero os aseguro que he derramado una cantidad de lágrimas más que considerable, sobretodo en los últimos capítulosMegan Bright ti [...]

    Aujourd'hui, je vais vous parler d'une déception, et c'est vraiment quelque chose que je n'aime pas faire, mais je considère qu'il est de mon "devoir" de blogueuse d'être honnête quant à mes lectures, et de dire quand je suis déçue. Je ne cherche cependant en aucun cas à dénigrer ce livre, qui a ses qualités (que je souligne) et qui saura plaire à beaucoup de monde !Je suis tombée sur ce livre en librairie, par hasard, le jour de sa sortie, et le résumé m'a rapidement convaincue.
