Walk with the narrator as she moves through an unwanted end, to a new beginning. Keep moving through the emotional journey to find hope, find healing, and find out why Heaven Has No Regrets. "Grief has no rules. But there is one piece of advice that it whispers. If you listen, you can hear it through the rising smoke of death. It’s saying, 'Keep moving. Don’t look back. No regrets.' 

REVIEW BY: Angel, age 12 years, 9 months


Makenzie and Faith are cousins, very close cousins. They are best friends. When Faith gets sick Makenzie gets really worried that it will be the last time she sees Faith. 

Makenzie has a lot going on with her family and Faith doesn't feel like she's enough because her dad left her and didn't say goodbye. 

This book is highly recommended for ages 14 and up because of adult language and because of the subject nature. 

I don't have a favorite part because I didn't finish the book because of the adult language. 

I give this book 2 out of 5 stars because of the above and I recommend it for ages 14 and up. 

**Mom read book when Angel couldn't anymore and mom gives this book 3 out of 5 stars. It is a great book for older ages and is a tear-filled story.
