Reviewed by Linda:This moving novel may remind readers of John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars, both for its realistic portrayal of teens up against serious medical challenges and for its very sympathetic characters. David, the high school senior class president, is at a dangerous stage of his lifelong struggle with cystic fibrosis. Jamie, a friendless sophomore at his school, is a young woman wrestling with life-threatening depression. When their paths cross at the hospital, to their surprise they become friends who can help each other in ways no one else can. Cammie McGovern writes compassionately but not sentimentally about her young characters, and you’ll soon be rooting for them.
