Critically acclaimed author Melissa Kantor masterfully
captures the joy of friendship, the agony of loss, and the unique experience of
being a teenager in this poignant new novel about a girl grappling with her
best friend’s life-threatening illness.
Zoe and her best friend, Olivia, have always had big plans
for the future, none of which included Olivia getting sick. Still, Zoe is
determined to put on a brave face and be positive for her friend.
Even when she isn’t sure what to say.
Even when Olivia misses months of school.
Even when Zoe starts falling for Calvin, Olivia’s crush.
The one thing that keeps Zoe moving forward is knowing that
Olivia will beat this, and everything will go back to the way it was before. It
has to. Because the alternative is too terrifying for her to even imagine.
In this incandescent page-turner, which follows in the
tradition of The Fault in Our Stars,
Melissa Kantor artfully explores the idea that the worst thing to happen to you
might not be something that is actually happening to you. Raw, irreverent, and
honest, Zoe’s unforgettable voice and story will stay with readers long after
the last page is turned.
