Description

A moving novel about learning to find happiness in the face of uncertainty and discovering a love that transcends the boundary between life and death.


Seventeen-year-old Alex Byrd is about to have the worst day of her life, and the best. A routine blood test that will reveal her leukaemia has returned, but she also meets Jamie Orange.


Some people believe in love at first sight, and some don't.


I believe in love in four days.


I believe in falling.


Both teenagers have big dreams, but also big obstacles to overcome.


'Promise me you won't try to die,' I said. 'Ever.'


'Promise me you won't either,' he countered.


'It's not really something I can control.'
