In exchange for an honest review

Like I said, I like YA fic in audio that tugs on the heartstrings. Though I did wish this could have tugged a bit more.

David has cystic fibrosis and is at the hospital. I never really got to know him, sure he is sick, sure he wont live long, but still...

Jamie struggles with depression. Her father killed himself. She was homeschooled and she loves art. Her I do know. I felt so sorry for her.

They meet as she works as a volunteer. They get to know each other, and she takes risk, omg no, do not take risks Jamie!

It gets really hard. I felt for her, and I can't say more because spoilers.

It also got weird as, well, spoilers!

I liked it, I will tell you, no tears. No sadness.

Narrators. I do not think I have listened to either narrator before, but they did well. I enjoyed listening to them.

David Scheinman is the popular president of his senior class, battling cystic fibrosis.

Jamie Turner is a quiet sophomore, struggling with depression.

The pair soon realizes that they're able to be more themselves with each other than they can be with anyone else, and their unlikely friendship starts to turn into something so much more.

But neither Jamie nor David can bring themselves to reveal the secrets that weigh most heavily on their hearts--and their time for honesty may be running out.


  1. Glad you liked it Blodeuedd, risky and weird hmmm.

  2. This sounds like an emotional one!

  3. I'm glad to hear you liked it for the most part.

  4. I think I've read something by this author before. How dare you not say the spoilers?! lol

  5. YA is always better in audio - I sometimes can't stand reading it, but listening to it is good!

  6. It does sound good in spite of not that much about David. I like YA like this kind of book too.

    1. He did have half the book, but at the same time...

  7. OMG.... just NO! Why do that to yourself? I found after having kids I really can't read this kind of stuff. *sobbing*

    1. It is really hard, but I try not to think about it

  8. No tears with that plot?! It sure sounds like a tearjerker, but when you don't connect with the characters you just don't connect with the characters. Oh well, onto the next book :)

    1. Nope, I do not want to spoil anything but well he lives so, no tears

  9. This sounds like such an emotional read. I can't believe that I haven't seen this one before. Great review!
