Murray McBride is 100 years old, on the day of his special birthday he meets 10 year old Jason Cashman and he's struggling to survive long enough to receive a heart transplant.
They meet when Murray decides to visit the cardiac ward in a local hospital and due to the age gap they don't have a single thing in common!
After Jason leaves hospital, Murray finds a note and Jason he's made a list of the 5 things he wants to do before he dies.
The age gap is a big one, Jason is into gaming, Murray is rather old fashioned and set in his ways. Murray decides to help Jason with his bucket list and it's the start of a very interesting friendship.
The Five Wishes of Mr. Murray McBride is a heart warming story about friendship, hope, and love.
I gave the book 3 stars, it's a quick book to read and it needed just a little more depth in the story for me.
