2 Star #Review of Say What You Will by Cammie McGovern

John Green's The Fault in Our Stars meets Rainbow Rowell's Eleanor & Park in this beautifully written, incredibly honest, and emotionally poignant novel. Cammie McGovern's insightful young adult debut is a heartfelt and heartbreaking story about how we can all feel lost until we find someone who loves us because of our faults, not in spite of them.

Born with cerebral palsy, Amy can't walk without a walker, talk without a voice box, or even fully control her facial expressions. Plagued by obsessive-compulsive disorder, Matthew is consumed with repeated thoughts, neurotic rituals, and crippling fear. Both in desperate need of someone to help them reach out to the world, Amy and Matthew are more alike than either ever realized.

When Amy decides to hire student aides to help her in her senior year at Coral Hills High School, these two teens are thrust into each other's lives. As they begin to spend time with each other, what started as a blossoming friendship eventually grows into something neither expected.

For me this one was just way to close to The Fault in Our Stars.  I spent the first few chapters wondering if I should just skip to the back to see if both kids survive.  And well after a few more chapters I just decided that this one just wasn't for me. 

From what I did read though I loved the strength that Amy had.  Although I know someone with CP and she can speak and walk just fine although she is a little slower than most.  

I also loved the plot about that anyone can find love.  Because you know what they can!!
