Synopsis

Fans of All the Bright Places and The Fault in Our Stars will fall head-over-heels for this wonderfully original portrait of love and loss.

Samantha McCoy has it all mapped out. First she's going to win the national debating championship, then she's going to move to New York and become a human rights lawyer.

But when Sam discovers that a rare disease is going to take away her memory, the future she'd planned so perfectly is derailed before its started.

Realising that her life won't wait to be lived, Sam sets out on a summer of firsts.

The first party.
The first rebellion.
The first friendship.
The last love.

In the media
Things you will probably experience while reading this wonderful book: gut-wrenching hope, ugly-crying, the joy of finding beautiful moments in the midst of difficult times. Enjoy.

Adi Alsaid, author of LET'S GET LOST and NEVER ALWAYS SOMETIMES

Sardonic, distinctive, and wildly intelligent.

Kirkus Reviews

A love story that will leave many readers in tears.

Publishers Weekly

A story of self discovery that's hard to put down.
