Send Me a Sign by Tiffany Schmidt
Blurb via Goodreads-
"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 absolutely loved Send Me a Sign. I am a superstitious person who highly believes in signs and I loved that Tiffany Schmidt included this in the book. This was an excellent debut and I loved the realistic characters. Send Me a Sign is an excellent take on the teenage perspective of having cancer and how it affects the people around them. Wonderful book, I hope to read more from Tiffany Schmidt!
5 out of 5 stars Highly Recommend!!!
