Meet Amy and Mathew, two teens with different types of disabilities who somehow find one another and become best friends. When Amy leaves for college, they both need to realize their limitations or abilities, and learn to adapt to life without one another. I definitely recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of recently popular teen fiction. This book explores people with disabilities in an unexpected way and succeeds in helping the reader understand people with disabilities as more normal than you would expect. On a basic level, I could relate with most of the characters of the book and understand their struggles. The book is not only well written, it keeps your attention with its witty dialog, and deep introspection on love and life. Really worth picking up!
