While desperately clinging to hope, life tosses Talisa into a whirlwind of storms, what will she do? Will she dig deep to find a resolution? Will she have what it takes to push through the face of adversity? The clock is ticking.
Book Review 1:
A breath-taking raw account of the effects of a disease, trauma and poverty, and the hope that prevails. I found myself holding my breath as the curtain was pulled back. This unvarnished debut is not to be missed!
----Courtney Cole, New York Times Bestselling Author
Book Review 2:
This story reveals the resilience of a young girl who refuses to give up hope when her mother is diagnosed with an often-debilitating disease. Through dramatic truths, humor, and beautifully poetic asides, it took me on a ride through a no-holds-barred narrative demonstrating the sometimes-difficult steps we must face to reach true self-awareness.

Critically acclaimed and bestselling authors Becky Albertalli and Adam Silvera combine their talents in this smart, funny, heartfelt collaboration about two very different boys who can’t decide if the universe is pushing them together—or pulling them apart.
ARTHUR is only in New York for the summer, but if Broadway has taught him anything, it’s that the universe can deliver a showstopping romance when you least expect it.
BEN thinks the universe needs to mind its business. If the universe had his back, he wouldn’t be on his way to the post office carrying a box of his ex-boyfriend’s things.
But when Arthur and Ben meet-cute at the post office, what exactly does the universe have in store for them . . . ?
Maybe nothing. After all, they get separated.
Maybe everything. After all, they get reunited.
But what if they can’t nail a first date even after three do-overs?
What if Arthur tries too hard to make it work and Ben doesn’t try hard enough?
What if life really isn’t like a Broadway play?
But what if it is?What if it’s us?
