John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars meets Rainbow Rowell’s Eleanor & Park in this beautifully written, incredibly honest, and emotionally poignant novel. Cammie McGovern’s insightful young adult debut is a heartfelt and heartbreaking story about how we can all feel lost until we find someone who loves us because of our faults, not in spite of them.

Born with cerebral palsy, Amy can’t walk without a walker, talk without a voice box, or even fully control her facial expressions. Plagued by obsessive-compulsive disorder, Matthew is consumed with repeated thoughts, neurotic rituals, and crippling fear. Both in desperate need of someone to help them reach out to the world, Amy and Matthew are more alike than either ever realized.

When Amy decides to hire student aides to help her in her senior year at Coral Hills High School, these two teens are thrust into each other’s lives. As they begin to spend time with each other, what started as a blossoming friendship eventually grows into something neither expected.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Cerebral palsy means Amy walks with difficulty and talks via a speech-enabled computer; Matthew’s life is increasingly limited by OCD…In her YA debut, adult author McGovern avoids gooeyness or condescension by making Amy and Matthew individuals, not diagnoses, and their relationship not just plausible, but suspenseful…Watching Amy and Matthew grapple with big questions…readers will be surprised, moved, amused, worried, hopeful, and grateful to have spent time with them.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “Exhilarating and heartrending, McGovern’s YA debut has a similar odd-couple camaraderie as Rainbow Rowell’s Eleanor & Park and the raw exploration of disability in R. J. Palacio’s Wonder. With a smart, proud, and capable protagonist eager to take her life by the reins, this novel is stunning.”

    Booklist (starred review)

  • “Rebecca Lowman’s gift for nuance flavors the narrative and Amy’s dialogue with humor, wit, hidden desires, delight, and sometimes despair…These sensitive portrayals are strengthened by Lowman’s skill in evoking the intensity of Matthew and Amy’s struggles to be themselves and, at the same time, find a path to a genuine relationship.”


  • “Crushes, missteps, and genuine loyalty on the road to deep friendship…McGovern’s triumph is how well she normalizes and highlights the variety of disability experiences among teens and their often circuitous journeys toward claiming their voices and right to self-determination…A deeply engaging and rewarding story.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “In Cammie McGovern’s debut novel Say What You Will, Amy and Matthew will break your heart and then with their resiliency and wit and ardor put it back together. This is a book to read, savor, and pass on and on until it has gone around the world twice.”
