I expected a cutesy-wutesy contemporary but you won't find that here. Real world drama lies in these pages, and one character I wanted to smack silly. I was a little lost on some of the language and cultural references that weren't explained well if at all. It felt unnecessarily long with some lulls in pacing. Overall, 3 out of 5 stars. Not terrible but not memorable either.
For about half of the book, I wanted to smack the protagonist. What was she doing? Why was she making such terrible choices? I was frustrated with the author for letting her character screw up over and over again. Then I realized the author did such a great job of putting me in the world that I was treating the character like a real person, and I thought about how unreasonable it was to ask a 16-year-old to make perfect professional decisions...
This is another book that proves to me that I am so over YA. There was a time a place for these books in my life, unfortunately in recent, I don‘t seem to care. Good premise, just totally does not fit what I want to read, it seemed predictable in my opinion.
Saira is a genius and at 16 she has finished med school and is ready to start her job on an pediatric oncology ward. She has wanted to work in this field since she lost a friend at the age of 8 to cancer. But on her first day she meets Link who thinks she is a patient just like him. The more she get to know him the more she likes him. But there is one thing she doesn't know how to deal with, heartbreak. This was a tender rom com! Really enjoyed it
