ARC-Send me a sign

Title: Send me a Sign
Author: Tiffany Schmidt
Expected publication: Oct. 2, 2012
Source: Publisher through netgalley
Pages: 384
Goodreads synopsis: Mia is always looking for signs. A sign that she should get serious with her soccer-captain boyfriend. A sign that she’ll get the grades to make it into an Ivy-league school. One sign she didn’t expect to look for was: “Will I survive cancer?” It’s a question her friends would never understand, prompting Mia to keep her illness a secret. The only one who knows is her lifelong best friend, Gyver, who is poised to be so much more. Mia is determined to survive, but when you have so much going your way, there is so much more to lose. From debut author Tiffany Schmidt comes a heart-wrenching and ultimately uplifting story of one girl’s search for signs of life in the face of death.
Fate's thoughts: It's official, Gyver Russo is my favorite male character ever!!!!!!!!! When this book started out, Mia's life was perfect. she had a perfect boyfriend, the best friends, more that great grades and popularity. That all suddenly changes when Mia gets diagnosed with leukemia. As you may know from the synopsis, she decides not to tell anyone except for Gyver, her guy best friend. And the story starts from there. I loved this book, it was great and my only complaint is that she didn't hook up with Gyver until the end and no this isn't a spoiler because we all know it was going to happen. Other than that the book was great. I loved all the characters except for her mom. I hated her mom so much, but i guess each person copes differently. I was really surprised about the ending. i was expecting one thing but got something totally different, which is great. All in all this book was beautiful, however i do recommend a big box of tissues.
