Perfect for the readers of Midnight Sun by Trish Cook and John Green’s A Fault in Our Stars.

Winning means staying alive. Losing means giving up. 

I’m not a quitter.

That’s why I’m still alive when every doctor agrees I shouldn’t be.

Dealt a horrid genetic deck of cards, I live with Batten disease. It’s rare, incurable, and always fatal.

Since my diagnosis, my parents, family, and doctors have worked tirelessly to find a cure. Yet the disease still took things from me…mostly my eyesight and my energy.

But I refuse to give it my happiness. 

At almost seventeen, I’m still ticking off the boxes of my dream bucket list. I’ll keep pushing for the seeing-eye dog…but only because romance seems too far-fetched. A girl can dream. Right?

Maybe this summer will be different…

Get it now.

My Review

5/5 Stars

Very sweet romance.

A problem I have a lot of times with romance is that they’re so sweet they’re unbelievable. This was not one of those stories. Drawn together through the tragedy of a rare disease, Haley and Matt are the perfect couple. Haley herself was a very unique character. For everything that she went through, she stayed positive and upbeat about life.

All the characters were very well crafted, and it became all too easy to connect with them. This is a story that will have you laughing, crying, and rooting for the characters all the way through the book.
