What would you do if everything you thought you knew turned out to be false?
Cassidy and Angie were best friends; they were excited about their junior year of high school. Angie was a championship runner, almost certain to win a scholarship to a great university. Cassidy was a good runner, and would probably go to school close to home. But this year, they were just excited to be going to parties and hanging out with their friends.
Everything was great... until it wasn't. Angie was diagnosed with leukemia. Cassidy, being the good friend she was, vowed to be by her side for every treatment until she was cured. Except Cassidy's mom had never had her vaccinated for childhood illnesses, and she began feeling a little under the weather...the harbinger of a tragedy that Cassidy never expects, causing her to question everything.

Modern medicine and medical technology are wonderful. It's because of amazing researchers and doctors that people around the world are living longer than they ever have before. They are curing diseases that used to be a death sentence for the patient!

"Oh my. Grabbed this out of the mailbox today. Ordered it for my kid. Thought I would flip through it first since I didn’t recognize the author. A couple hours later, nothings been done around the house and I’m oblivious to everything around me. I read it cover to cover in one sitting. I don’t want to give away any spoilers. Great read. Very moving. Characters are very relatable. Perfect for upper middle school and high school teens. Handed the book to my teen. She hasn’t moved since. I fully expect her to not move until she’s done."
