Title: Say What You Will
   Author: Cammie McGovern
   Release Date: June 3rd, 2014

     John 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.

My Stance:

     I believe I did this once in a Waiting on Wednesday and frankly I haven't found the time to get my hands on it let alone have the time to read it. However when you combine John Green and Rainbow Rowell into one synopsis I have to pay attention to the novel. What I enjoy most is you take two people who are extraordinary in their own way and thrust them together and see what happens. I don't doubt that this book will be great, I just wonder if the author can pull off the potential the book has. I honestly am more than shocked that I didn't pick this book up sooner, I have been looking at it in bookstores and drooling over it so.

     So two people with disabilities, or whatever you want to call it, are put in a situation in which normally everyone wouldn't think much about. The thought and the effort that would be need to go into something as unique and different as this novel would be intense. How the two interact and go about their lives together just sounds great. However I don't see where the John Green comparison comes in, maybe about the whole disability, but John's Green "The Fault in Our Stars" had more to the novel and meant more to those who read it, than the disabilities or the ailments. The book looks great, I just hope it follows through.
