Mia is always looking for signs. A sign that she should get serious with her soccer-captain boyfriend. A sign that she’ll get the grades to make it into an Ivy-league school. One sign she didn’t expect to look for was: “Will I survive cancer?” It’s a question her friends would never understand, prompting Mia to keep her illness a secret. The only one who knows is her lifelong best friend, Gyver, who is poised to be so much more. Mia is determined to survive, but when you have so much going your way, there is so much more to lose. From debut author Tiffany Schmidt comes a heart-wrenching and ultimately uplifting story of one girl’s search for signs of life in the face of death.

-- My Rating --

4/5 Oscars: Really liked it

-- My Thoughts --

     I have heard a LOT about this book and the way it brings out raw emotions. This book was moving, in a beautiful way, but it did bring me to tears. Which not a lot of books can make me do that. I am a weeper, but never for books. So, I am glad that this one did.
      Mia Moore has the ultimate teenage life. All full of normalcy. Until the day she finds out that she has blood cancer. Now, nothing seems clear. The world is full of choices. Should she tell her best friends or not? Should she take it a step farther with Ryan or nor? Should she trust her best friend Gyver or not? She was looking for signs everywhere, but now, she doesn't believe in their efficiency anymore?
     I loved Mia. I could connect with her all the time. She was insecure, sweet, and adorable. The two love interests were like different sides of a coin. So different yet perfect together. I just couldn't choose between Gyver and Ryan. Even in the end, I was sad to let go of one of them.
      Tiffany Schimdt makes you go through many emotions in this book. She had me crying many times, she also had me grinning. She made me fall in love with her characters. They make you think about the true value of life. I didn't want to finish this book, I wanted to savor every moment of reading it. I loved this book and would come back for more from the author. She is on my auto-read list, for sure.

  4. Nice review. This book sounds really good but I usually don't go into books knowing it's about cancer and death may be involved. I think I enjoy my happily ever afters a bit to much :)
