    1. I'm a sucker for anything witty and this book is none of an exception. Full of sentences to quote, indeed. Not those pretty words but those honest, effortless reflexes came out from a middle-schooler. I adore how the author developed her characters and the way the characters brought the story--so damn believable. I could say that I fell for her writing instead of her story. It's like, "I keep reading no matter what you write because I love the way you write and that's all that counts." Inspite o [...]


    2. This book is set in the late 1940s. Keely Connor dreams of riding the horse who lives in the field behind her house. Patrick, her brother, is stricken with polio, is paralyzed and loses the will to live.Keely tries her best to transfer her energy, health and zeal for life to her brother. A great young adult book about the hero in all of us.


    3. وقتی هشت سالم بود این کتابو داداشم بهم هدیه داد و صفحه‌ی اولش یه حکایت از گلستان در مورد این‌که هنرمند اگر از دولت بیفتد غم ندارد که هنر در نفس خود دولت است، هرجا که رود قدر ببیند و در صدر نشیند.



    4. دوباره دارم میخونمش!دوباره دارم لذت میبرم همدم خوبیه برام سر کلاس باکتری و اندیشه. خط به خطش منو یاد اون روزا میندازه .اینم میبرم واسشون!میخوام بشن قهرمان آرمان هاشون


    5. Buku ini menceritakan kedekatan dua saudara yang menyukai tantangan yang terkadang sangat sulit. Namun karena kesamaan tersebut keduanya sangat dekat walaupun terkadang mereka berbeda pendapat.Masalah muncul ketika Patrick, sang kakak, mengalami sakit polio, menjadikan dia sosok anak laki-laki yang lumpuh. Patrick menghabiskan waktunya di kamarnya dan menjadi pendiam serta selalu berpemikiran dia itu tidak berguna dan ingin mati saja.Namun, Patrick beruntung dikelilingi orang-orang yang menyayan [...]


    6. Keely, bagi saya buku ini menginspirasi. Memberikan teladan dan pelajaran bahwa kita harus selalu berusaha dan bertahan. Keely adalah buku tentang hubungan kakak adik (Patrick dan Keely), keluarga, persahabatan, dan dukungan dari seorang perawat.Patrick terkena polio dan Keely selalu ingin menjadikan Patrick seperti dirinya yang dulu sebelum penyakit itu menyerangnya. Kehadiran Alex dan Peggy (perawat Patrick) membuat Keely mencapai keinginannya.Buku ini juga menggambarkan bahwa dukungan keluarg [...]


    7. Suka sekali dan sangat menikmati penggambaran keadaan di novel ini. Nyata banget. Kayak nonton film.Di saat saya dikelilingi teman yang mempunyai teenlit percintaan, saya beli ini. Dan saya tidak menyesal. Hubungan kakak-adik itu lebih kuat dari sekadar sama gebetan. Terutama kepada saya, yang punya adik cowok berasa kembaran.Deskripsinya menyentuh, alurnya rapi, SETTINGNYA JUARA. Nggak nyangka banget saya juga, bisa nikmati latar jadul kayak gitu. Ini novel dengan waktu lampau yang saya suka se [...]


    8. I keep forgetting this book is only set in the 40's, not written then, because that's how completely the author submerges you. Noteworthy children's story, especially considering it features polio, which is not the easiest thing to work into a kid's book. Bonus: horses. It was mostly the horse on the cover that drew me in, to be honest, although I cannot seem to find a picture of the exact edition I read, which I believe was pure illustration rather than including any photographs.


    9. wow really good reminded me of a more modern reality based version of the secret gardeni wish there the ending was a bit more revealing of Patrick's fate but i guess thats teh realism of it all - he didnt become completely healed like collin in secret garden.ywho good book!


    10. This is a good book that I remember reading several times. I'm kind of pissed at the cover though, the version I have has a really horrible horrible cover that makes the book look little-kiddy and cheesy. But it's not.


    11. HERO OF LESSER CAUSES was a great book. Keely and her Brother Patrick are as close as Siamese cats. I learned more about polio and things about it. I loved how all characters were all different and had different personalities. I truly recommend reading this novel.






    12. pretty good-about a girl whos brother gets polio and is paralyzed and loses his will to live-and how she helps him


    13. Loved it. thank you Dorothy for your confusion. I had to interlibrary loan it because MCL only has one of her books. Love the way she puts a little magic in her realism.



    14. I think this is one of different teenlit. Story about bonding between brother and sister. The setting is 1946 (too old for teenlit, heh? :D)


    15. Delightful story: family coming to grips with the devistations of a disease the modern world is not familiar with anymore, and what it means to be a hero.


    16. تو نوجوانی خوندمش. اگه بخوام به چیزی که ازش یادم مونده ستاره بدم، 5 ستاره ای ه. ولی مشتاقم دوباره بخونمش. البته اگه بتونم پیداش کنم :)
