Awakening to Life by Caitlin Guy

**If you liked John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars or Nicholas Sparks’ A Walk to Remember, you’ll love Awakening to Life! 

Everyone dies, someday and somehow. But for sixteen year old Alison Redding, life is too short. 

Allie is dying of cancer. More than anything, she wants to be a normal teenager. She keeps her secrets close to her chest at school. 

But pretending to be healthy can be exhausting. The truth is stretched and the lies pile up. All the while, Allie tries to make the most of each moment. 

New friends find their way into her heart and family becomes the key to Allie’s happiness. 

Can Allie maintain the pretence when the lies are larger than the truth? When it seems that all hope is lost, can she find the people who make her want to fight back? And can she fall in love when time is running out?
