Book Review (338): Say What You Will - Cammie McGovern

Say What You Will

Say What You Will is a young adult contemporary romance unlike any I've ever read, exceptionally written with very detailed descriptions of Amy and Matthew's disability/disorder, it gives you a look into how people inflicted with both Cerebral Palsy and OCD deal or not deal with their conditions.

The stroke of genius in this story is the fact that Cammie thought of putting these two characters who both have their own challenges together, both friendless they find in each other what they both needed all along, to be accepted for who they are and to help each other to have as normal a life as possible.

For Amy growing up with Cerebral Palsy, having to use a voice box to talk and a walker to get around, she has never had any friends whatsoever, not helped by the fact that all of her helpers have been adults, but this year being her final year of high school she is getting peer aides, people her own age to help her at school, one of those is Matt who has a steadily worsening case of OCD, with Amy's help he starts to get it under control as these two start to discover their feelings for one another run much deeper than just friends.

I adored these two characters, put together with this amazing story to form one of my favorite YA romances of all time.

I look forward to reading whatever Cammie releases next, I love her writing style and ability to tell a story that will definitely tug at the heart strings and leave you with a smile on your face.

Highly recommended.

I give this 5/5 stars.
