Convince us to read the book: Even though Aiden started off hating his disability, the strong part was he started trying to live with his disability because of Kate. At first Kate was kinda being selfish about her disability and how she has type 1 diabetes, there are people who have it way worse than her, but at the end she finally began to see what happens if she doesn't take it seriously. Aidan and Kate both needed each other to understand themselves and each other.
Memorable or Forgettable: What made it memorable was two disabled people finding each other and starting to feel different emotions than they have had without each other. It was nice to hear both point of views and how they thought of each other.
Cover: The cover did look look interesting for me to pick up.The heart on the cover was accurate to the book.
Age Range: 14 through 17
Quality: 4Q - Better than most
