Revue de presse

Even in hospice, a lot can happen in a short time ... Being near death doesn't mean abandoning hope for the life that remains. --Publishers Weekly, starred review Seamon's first young-adult novel is a tender, insightful, and unsentimental look at two teens in extremis. It brings light to a very dark place, and in so doing, does its readers a generous service. --Booklist

Présentation de l'éditeur

“Chemo, radiation, a zillion surgeries, watching my mom age twenty years in twenty months . . . if that’s part of the Big Dude’s plan, then it’s pretty obvious, isn’t it? Enough said.”

Smart-mouthed and funny, sometimes raunchy, Richard Casey is in most ways a typical seventeen-year-old boy. Except Richie has cancer, and he's spending his final days in a hospice unit. In this place where people go to die, Richie has plans to make the most of the life he has left. Sylvie, the only other hospice inmate under sixty, has a few plans of her own for Richie. What begins as camaraderie quickly blossoms into real love, and this star-crossed pair is determined to live on their own terms, in whatever time remains.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Heart-breaking but enjoyable read 11 septembre 2013
Par Alice Berger - Publié sur Amazon.com
Richard Casey, seventeen years old, is in the hospice unit of the hospital. But even though they've told him he's got less than a month left, he's not done living yet. In fact, he's more than ready to make love to the fifteen year-old girl, also in the ward, who doesn't want to die a virgin. Richard is determined to be the biggest troublemaker the hospital staff have ever seen.

But Richard is under constant watch by the hospital staff, parents and other family members who hover around the ward 24-7, and the "Br'ers" as he calls them - religious staff there to assist in the transition from life to death. All Richard wants to do is have some fun, but no one wants to let him.

A book about dying teenagers would probably only appeal to the more morbid of us. But Hollis Seamon has done a magnificent job of portraying these teens in such a real light. They're just teens - not adults - and they're not willing to give up their spunk and personality, no matter what. Even though there is no doubt from the beginning how the story will ultimately end, this is not a depressing tale. My only disappointment is that no one in the story expresses any concern about the afterlife, and how to make sure one ends up in the right place. Overall, this is a great teen read.

Warnings: sexual situations and language

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Some kind of wonderful ... 31 mai 2014
Par Richard Kramer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
How can I have forgotten to add this wonderful book to my shelves? And I even blurbed it!!! It's about what one might call an ultimate romance, in that it's between a boy and a girl in a hospice. Somehow, it's hilarious, and somehow it's deeply moving in exciting, unexpected ways. Yeah, sure, I've read THE FAULT IN OUR STARS and he has twenty million Twitter followers and he high-fives people and says Awesome! a lot and I think he's very earnest and completely uninteresting and I hope he gets twenty million more Twitter followers and is described for the rest of his life as the author who really figured out how to work social media. Which -- perhaps this is age speaking -- strikes me as a tiny, tiny achievement. This book, though, is a real one, and I can't recommend it highly enough.

This is one of those books that really tugs on the heart strings, yet doesn't go into the Twilight mush. This book is a very good read and an astonishing first novel from Hollis Seamon. A must read for all teens and adults alike!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 More than just "Young Adult" Literature 3 février 2014
Par Chloë Rose - Publié sur Amazon.com

Hollis Seamon's "Somebody Up There Hates You" (SUTHY) is not just for young adults; though told by a young man, SUTHY is not just for boys. As a 27 year-old woman, SUTHY touched my heart. Seamon has crafted real characters; no one, not even the "villains," are a stereotype. Seamon is acutely aware that we all come with our own baggage. The main character, Richard, moves from situation to situation within the plot, discovering, heartbreakingly, that all of us have to grow up--even if we're days away from dying.

I've also checked in with friends in the medical community--Seamon describes accurately what hospice looks like (e.g., Richard's declining vision/strange hallucinations is indicative of a build up of ammonia in the brain, common with people who are dying). Seamon's dedication at the beginning of the book is fitting--she's seen it and so she's wrote it down.

There's been a lot of hype about "The Fault in Our Stars" of late and I have to say--as a reader of both, SUTHY is the one worth reading. Death is not glorified or romanticized in Seamon's book--it's made real. It's long fingers touches everybody. One sees, with each turn of the page, how frail each of us truly is. SUTHY causes us to ask two very important questions (as young and mature adults): in Richard's shoes, what would you do? More importantly, what wouldn't you do?

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Story About Facing Tragedy With Hope 2 septembre 2013
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Richard Casey has terminal cancer. He's living in hospice, but one thing sets him apart from the other patients there. He's only seventeen. Somebody Up There Hates You could have turned into the typical heart-breaking tale of a dying boy, but it didn't. Richard was the comic relief as a main character. He is determined to live every day to the fullest even as his health deteriorates.

Somebody Up There Hates You takes you through Richard losing his virginity, getting drunk for the first time, and growing up in a place where no kid should have to grow up. Richard focuses on falling in love, making memories with his family, and being a normal teenager.

I really enjoyed reading Somebody Up There Hates You. It was heart-warming and yes, sad, but not so sad that I needed to lay in my bed and cry all day. This novel was a great story of overcoming your problems and staying positive even in the worst of situations. Seamon created a very original story out of a topic that has been written about time and time again. I think that shows real talent as a writer.
