Cam has been battling neuroblastoma for the past seven years. She has been to every specialist and endured every treatment. Her most recent scan tells her there’s nothing else that can be done. While Cam is prepared to give up her fight, her mother isn’t so willing to let her go just yet. Packing up a U-Haul and moving from Florida to a little town in Maine called Promise is the last hope. Does this secluded little place really have magical powers? If not, will Cam be able to complete her “Flamingo List” before she dies?
Are you a sadomasochist who reads a synopsis like the one above and immediately says “I’m in!!!!”? Yeah, me too. This book was everything I knew it would be. I bawled like a big fat baby until my husband said “why do you DO this to yourself?” Simple answer? I’m a glutton for punishment. If you want a good cry (and have already read The Fault in Our Stars and the like), this is a decent selection.
