"Screw you, Alejandro!"----------
Review copy from author----------
4 kittens out of 5----------
Like I've said multiple times before, books about medical stuff intrigues me. That's what drew me to this book in the first place. It is a well written book. The only thing I have to complain about is Pamela only ever refers to Sophie's disease as MS, which I assume stands for multiple sclerosis. But other than that, I enjoyed it.
Sophie is interesting. She's not searching for a cure for herself, but for her grandmother. Her grandmother is her best friend. Sophie's grandmother is probably my favorite character. She's lively and funny. Even if we don't encounter her directly all that often, you can tell Sophie loves her a lot. Sophie thinks she can keep Alejandro at a distance. She's the ice queen. She knows his type, Alpha Boy that thinks he owns the world. But Alejandro is different and none of her tactics work. His secret just about broke my heart, it was so sad.
Speaking of secrets, Sophie and Alejandro refused to talk about them. I'm fine with that. I also liked that when they finally started talking, Sophie did try and tell Alejandro about her secret several times, but they kept getting interrupted, so it wasn't like she was avoiding telling him after he shared his. Has anybody else noticed that annoying trend? The girl gets mad at the guy for not telling his secret when she won't tell hers, even after the guy divulges. But that's not what happens in this book, so yay for me (and you, because you should read the book :).
