Overview
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 an answer 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.

First-time author Schmidt gracefully incorporates weighty subject matter—a teenager battling leukemia—into an inspirational yet unsentimental novel about love, trust, and hope. After receiving her diagnosis, popular cheerleader Mia Moore—who obsessively seeks out hidden symbols and signs to determine her decision-making—faces two problems: surviving chemotherapy and following her mother's suggestion to keep her illness secret. Mia has already explained her condition to her longtime neighbor and confidante, Gyver, but his unconditional support doesn't make it any easier to lie to her girlfriends and her new boyfriend, Chris. Pretending nothing is wrong is as taxing as her cancer treatments, and when Mia finally confesses the truth to Chris and the cheerleading squad, their reactions are not what she expects. The dramatic physical changes Mia undergoes are honestly addressed, yet they are less in the forefront than her emotional transformation. Schmidt's heroine believably vacillates between stoicism and indignation as she learns to rely less on superstitious signals to predict her future and more on herself, taking charge of the matters within her control. Ages 12–up. Agent: Joe Monti, Barry Goldblatt Literary. (Oct.)
