(The Nut Family, your life He's survived cancer but his drug addiction nearly killed him Now he's been sober for seven months and enjoying his community service at the. When I was a teenager and reading every book I could get my hands on I was desperate for a girl that looked like me For a girl who had cancer and lived And it was really hard to come by So I wrote one Normally I like to start off my reviews with a uote from the book however we re going change things up a little bit today This uote is from the author s note at the very end of this story and I would be 110% lying if I didn t ugly cry after reading this But really how powerful and amazing is thatI think it really says a lot about a book whenou ve read it months ago and it still continues to blow ou away and that s exactly what debut author Kati Gardner has done I read this book in March and I still can t seem to find the right words to talk about how important this story is I will
"admit that I did initially judge this book by it s cover because I mean how can ou not It "that I did initially judge this book by it s cover because I mean how can ou not It absolutely beautiful But I was further sold on this book after reading the synopsis for two reasons The first was because I can t recall ever reading a YA book that battles drug addiction The second was because the only other book I ve read that tackles cancer was TFIOS which I enjoyedThis book was definitely character driven than anything else but I found myself rooting so hard for both Cason and Davis individually and together as a couple Cason has been hiding a leg injury in order to audition for a ballet theater telling herself it s just a strain until she can no longer put off her injury any and finds out it is something much worse In that one moment her perfect prima ballerina pink tutu world fell off its pointe She wasn t Cason Martin prima ballerina any She was Cason Martin number T7654908 cancer patient With her hopes and dreams shattered Cason struggles heavily with her new reality and falls into a deep depression Davis a former cancer patient is sentenced to 300 hours community service at the hospital wing he was once a patient in after getting caught and charged with an intent to distribute drugs Although Davis has been clean and sober for almost a ear he does still struggle heavily throughout this story with his drug addiction especially on the harder days As horrible as it is to say that struggle is appreciated His drug addiction was not sugar coated as in he once did drugs but now isn t phased by them it s he did hard drugs and still battles it every day which is the reality of drug addictionIf Wicked City (Wicked City, you haven t put two and two togetheret cancer patient community service in cancer wing of hospital Davis and Cason s worlds colliding together And although their reason for meeting is anything but happy they both seem to find healing and happiness in one another This did feature the dreaded insta love but I was able to see past it very uickly because this is so much than a love story
it s a story about finding hope ins a story about finding hope in most unlikely places and character development like The Celestial Selenite Scry (The Moon God Trilogy, you wouldn t believe Speaking of character developmentou ve never seen it written so well when it comes to Cason s mom Natalie She s annoying nagging and unable to accept daughter s illness in the beginning but at the end Oh she was #EVERYTHING I HOPED FOR AND I #I hoped for and I had to hold back the big fat ugly tears for herThis is merely the tip of the iceberg of the story There s still so much to be expected like ex girlfriends coming around new friendships restraining orders surgeries AH MAZING disability rep visible and non visible and who knows Cason may even find a new passion in lifeAll in all ou don t want to miss this because it s a book that will stick with ou for a long time to come And this author deserves not only Cason s story to be told but her own as well so don t mind me while I go back to the author s note and continue bawling my eyes outBlog Twitter Instagram If Americas sewing book you ve ever seen any of my status updatesou will know that I am an absolute sucker for judging books by their covers and this was no exception As soon as I saw this on Netgalley I knew I needed it I think I even reuested it without reading the description if I m honest here But DAMN The story definitely lives up to that beautiful cover A super cute readA part of me is screaming that this only deserves four stars This book probably does deserve four stars But I loved reading it I was enjoying myself the whole way through the book and I read for enjoyment so that is reason enough for a full five stars for meThough it was a fluffy and cute contemporary there were also some serious topics which were dealt with and I appreciated thatIt deals with cancer so than nearly any other book I ve read And the author has experience She gets it and that definitely comes across in the bookIt also dealt with drug addiction This was very new for me I mean I knew that it happened but I didn t get it until now This book helped me understand so much what people will go through and I am so appreciative that this book went there and dealt with the topic What I did not appreciat.
