Summary of the Book:

In this heartfelt and emotionally candid contemporary YA, author Jen Malone delves into the life of a teen whose world is brought to an abrupt halt when she learns she’s in dire need of an organ transplant.
Hard-charging and irrepressible eighteen-year-old Amelia Linehan could see a roller derby opponent a mile away—and that’s while crouched down, bent over skates, and zooming around a track at the speed of light. They don’t call her Rolldemort for nothing! What she couldn’t see coming, however, was the unexpected flare-up of a rare liver disorder she was born with. But now it’s the only thing she—and everyone around her—can think about.

With no guarantee of a viable organ transplant, everything Amelia’s been sure of—like her college plans, the mural she’d been commissioned to paint, or the possibility of one day falling in love—has become a huge question mark, threatening to drag her down into a sea of what-ifs she’s desperate to avoid.

Then a friend from the past shows up. With Will, it’s easy to forget about what’s lurking underneath the lightness of their time together. It’s easy to feel alive when all signs point elsewhere. On the other hand, with the odds decidedly not in her favor, Amelia knows this feeling couldn’t last forever. But what can?

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. Amelia has everything going for her. She is enjoying her time as a senior in high school. That meant spending time with her best friend. They had time on the roller derby track. That is when the world come crashing down around her. She finds out that she is sick and this make other look at her differently. That makes life hard on everyone. She does not like being seen as a victim because she is not well. There were times while reading this my heart her for the characters. They had to deal with a lot of ups and downs.

My Rating of the Book: 4 1/2 Stars
