Book Review: "Send Me a Sign" by Tiffany Schmidt
So here are my thoughts - it is a cancer book. But I feel like it handles the cancer part of it really well. There are lots of medical details, but doesn't get bogged down by them. The characters are really well-developed... I loved both Ryan and Gyver. They are both really good for Mia for different reasons, and even though I was kinda pulling more for one than the other - I really started getting annoyed with the going back and forth between them. That said, it really is as much a part of Mia's story as her illness. I also found it very interesting that in this case, the parents were not trying to get their kid to date the neighbor kid - even though the parents are close friends too. Not a big deal or anything, just something I noticed. My paperback edition also had a small blurb set a little bit after the story ends, just to help a bit with closure which I enjoyed as well.
Give this to teens who like cancer books or sad/hopeful books and a good love story. While I don't love the love triangle thing, it is nice to have two decent options to choose from.
