Synopsis: When popular high school senior Mia is diagnosed with cancer her whole world falls apart. Feeling her friends would never understand, she decides to keep her illness a secret, leaving her to face cancer virtually alone. This story is about Mia battling her cancer and finding herself.
Characters: I loved Mia instantly. I know most of us think popular girl and automatically think of scenes from Mean Girls, but Mia was exactly the opposite. She was sweet, hopeful and lovable; which of course only made her story more heartbreaking. The author did a great job with Mia. She felt real and you truly wanted her to not just get better, but to be happy.
Action: Mia’s deception of her friends keeps you on the edge of your seat the whole time. You’re always wondering when they will find out. Also, Mia’s health and love life keep you guessing; not a dull moment to be found here.
Romance: Mia’s love life is complicated to say the least. I won’t say too much because I don’t want to ruin it. I will say that it was pretty epic, especially for someone who has cancer. You go girl!
Overall: Overall, this was a very heartbreaking and amazing book. I would recommend it to anyone who has read and liked The Fault in Our Stars by John Green or anyone looking for a great realistic fiction book.
