Review: Zac and Mia

Zac and Mia Zac and Mia by A.J. Betts
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Meet Zac - a 17-year-old who is trapped in his room on the cancer ward as he recovers from a bone marrow transplant. He's goofy, kind-hearted, and obsessed with statistics.

Meet Mia - the new kid on the cancer ward who resents the fact that she's here. She's angry, loud, and has the best chance of survival of all of them.

Told in two distinct voices, their stories unfold and intertwine to reveal the harsh realities and emotional toll of cancer. Not the stereotypical chemo treatments and nausea, but the terror and uncertainty that envelop patients and their families.

This is a story of hope, despair, life, and death. Give this one to fans of John Green.
