#FirstPage with The Last Wish of Sasha Cade by @NormalChey


"The Last Wish of Sasha Cade will break your heart and then heal it."
-- C.C. Hunter, New York Times bestselling author of the Shadow Falls series





About the Book: The day Raquel has been dreading for months has finally arrived. 

Sasha, her best friend in the whole world -- the best friend in the whole world -- has died of cancer. 

Raquel can’t imagine life without her. She’s overwhelmed and brokenhearted.

And then a letter from Sasha arrives. Has she somehow found a way to communicate from the afterlife?

In fact, Sasha has planned an elaborate scavenger hunt for Raquel, and when she follows the instructions to return to Sasha’s grave, a mysterious stranger with striking eyes is waiting for her. 

There’s a secret attached to this boy that only Sasha—and now Raquel—knows.

This boy, Elijah, might be just what Raquel needs to move on from her terrible loss. 

But can Raquel remain true to herself while also honoring her friend’s final wish?

Cheyanne lives near the beach with her daughter and husband, one spoiled rotten puppy, and a cat that is most likely plotting to take over the world. Her newest book, The Last Wish of Sasha Cade, releases in 2018.

Prologue 

The cancer would take its time killing Sasha Cade. I think we all knew that, in the beginning. Her lymphoma wouldn’t be like what happens to someone’s random uncle, where he finds a weird lump in his that and it’s diagnosed as stage four, and bam, a month later he’s pushing up daisies. “If we’d only caught it sooner,” everyone would say. 
Sasha and I knew it wouldn’t be like that. 
Her cancer would take a slow journey, inflaming her lymph nodes one by one until she could connect the painful dots all over her body like tourist stops on a road map of death. 
The treatment would cost thousands- tens of thousands-draining Sasha’s adoptive parents’s savings account. Luckily, they could afford it. 
It was clear from the moment Sasha returned from that fateful doctor visit that cancer was the villain in the tragedy of the best friend’s life story. As we sat on the brick retainer wall in front of her house a week after the news, Sasha told me not to think of it like that. She didn’t want the cancer to the bad guy here. She didn’t want to give it credit for anything, much less ruining her life, because she was still alive and she still had things to accomplish.
