If someone had told me five years ago that I'd be a writer, I would've laughed in their face. Sad, I know. In fact, I think a few people actually did tell me...And I'm pretty sure I laughed.
And I'm still laughing! But it's not a joke anymore. This is for real! Not only have I written one book, I've written seven! Now I finally get to share one with you!
Never in a million years did I imagine it would happen this way, though. I thought for sure I'd get an agent, have a great post about that experience, work with them to get all the details right, then eventually get a publisher. And I still hope to have all that one day. But this book was supposed to be self published. As I've told you before, I have no doubt about it.
Now for the good stuff...
All Kate wants is to live. Battling cystic fibrosis is hard enough, dying from it is even harder. When her mom moves them closer to the hospital in the middle of her senior year, Kate’s determined to isolate herself—saving everyone the trouble of befriending a dying girl. It’s a difficult task when cheerful optimist Giana insists on being Kate’s friend.
Kate’s resolve falters even more when curly-haired Kyler captivates her with his sweet melodies. As her emotional walls collapse, Kate realizes the people she’s been pushing away may be the ones giving her a reason to live. But it might be too late.
