Say What You Will
By Cammie McGovern
Release Date: June 3, 2014John Green's The Fault in Our Stars meets Rainbow Rowell's Eleanor & Park in this beautifully written, incredibly honest, and emotionally poignant novel. Cammie McGovern's insightful young adult debut is a heartfelt and heartbreaking story about how we can all feel lost until we find someone who loves us because of our faults, not in spite of them.
Born with cerebral palsy, Amy can't walk without a walker, talk without a voice box, or even fully control her facial expressions. Plagued by obsessive-compulsive disorder, Matthew is consumed with repeated thoughts, neurotic rituals, and crippling fear. Both in desperate need of someone to help them reach out to the world, Amy and Matthew are more alike than either ever realized.
When Amy decides to hire student aides to help her in her senior year at Coral Hills High School, these two teens are thrust into each other's lives. As they begin to spend time with each other, what started as a blossoming friendship eventually grows into something neither expected.
The very first sentence of the summary for this book is definitely what puts it on my TBR list. I absolutely love John Green and Rainbow Rowell, so a book claiming to combine those two into one brilliant novel is a definite must-read. I haven't read a book about a character with cerebral palsy, so I'm interested to see how things are from Amy's perspective. And once you throw Matt, who has OCD, into her life, things are bound to turn interesting! I can definitely feel the quirky characters vibe from Rainbow Rowell's novels, and I can't wait to see how it turns out!
