Mia is always looking for signs. A sign that she should get serious with her soccer-captain boyfriend. A sign that
she’ll get the grades to make it into an Ivy-league school. One sign she didn’t expect to look for was: “Will I survive cancer?” It’s a question her friends would never understand, prompting Mia to keep her illness a secret. The only one who knows is her lifelong best friend, Gyver, who is poised to be so much more. Mia is determined to survive, but when you have so much going your way, there is so much more to lose. From debut author Tiffany Schmidt comes a heart-wrenching and ultimately uplifting story of one girl’s search for signs of life in the face of death
I normally avoid cancer books. I made an exception for Send Me a Sign because I had communicated with Tiffany Schmidt (who is awesome). Well, this book is amazing. Its incredibly well written and very realisitic. Tifanny handled the issue of cancer very well.
In the beginning, Mia’s life seems perfect. You are there with her, seeing how much cancer changes her life. She hides her cancer from her friends, not wanting them to change they way they see her. Since you are with her since she learned of her illness, you see how it affects her life. You meet her friends and see how they change because of her illness.Send Me a Sign was inspired by a real girl. One of Tiffany’s students, Morgan, who passed away from cancer. When you pre-order Send Me a Sign (released Oct 2nd) Tiffany will donate money in Morgans memory. For more information on that go HERE.
I give Send Me a Sign 5 out 5 stars.
