This is the second staff recommendation for this book! Just last month, Laona talked about how much she liked this book. This is what Mary Ann has to say about it:
“I’ve been coming across reviews of this Young Adult novel for months. It’s one of the many YA novels that deserve attention as books that will captivate readers of any age. Lots of book discussion groups are adding YA novels to their lists. No vampires or dystopias–it’s an unsentimental look at a couple of teenagers who meet at a cancer support group and fall in love. They speak to each other with wit and humor about their fears and dreams. Their situations will tug at your heart, but the writing never becomes sugar-coated nor sappy. The depictions of the adults who hover over them and interact with them ring true”.
