Goodreads Synopsis: 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.

From Goodreads

Say What You Will by Cammie McGovern is one of the most poignant, inspiring, and beautifully crafted books I ever read. I love it from it's flawed characters to it's honestly and realness! This was a great read!

  Mhmm..this one was amazing

Amy and Matthew knew each other since elementary school yet the never actually became friends. But when Amy decided to make friends her mom calls in a group of teens her age that could be "possible" friends. But as Amy gets to know each one she gets closer to Matthew. I honestly love the whole premise of the book. It was moving but not fast, it was real without trying hard, and you get close with Amy and Matthew you will not put this one down! I even loved Sanjay and Sarah and every single character because they felt real and true.
Say What You Will also had something that kept me turning the pages. The characters are amazing, the plot line was great, but the tension and quirkiness of Amy and Matthew hooked me! I especially loved the fun dialogues they had with each other and seeing how each one moved on with life.
In the end, Say What You Will was a stunning book that will blow you away. It's fast plot filled with quirky characters and dynamic relationships is the perfect summer read! Pick this one up! 


  1. I wasn't sure about this one at first, but it slowly won me over. Great review!
