John Green''s The Fault in Our Stars meets Rainbow Rowell''s Eleanor & Park in this beautifully written, clever, and emotionally poignant novel that tackles serious issues amidst the story of a star-crossed love.
To Matthew, Amy is the girl with cerebral palsy. She can''t walk without a walker, talk without an automated voice box, or even fully control her facial expressions. But what he doesn''t realize is that trapped inside Amy''s uncooperative body is a kindred spirit.
To Amy, Matthew is a just another quiet boy from her school. But what Amy doesn''t know is that Matthew''s mind is consumed with repeated thoughts, obsessive rituals, and crippling fear-telltale signs of an obsessive compulsive disorder that he won''t ever admit to.
No matter what she says, Matthew just can''t believe Amy is as happy with her life as she seems. How could she be? So when Amy decides to hire student-helpers to help with her daily life at school, Matthew jumps at the chance to prove he''s right. But as the two begin to spend time with each other, they finally open up about their individual problems. And what starts as a blossoming friendship, eventually grows into something neither expected.
