Teaser Tuesday (88): Zac & Mia by A.J. Betts

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

This week's teaser is  from Zac & Mia by A.J. Betts. I've been wanting to read this one for a while, so I'm really excited to finally have the chance. So far it's pretty good, though I do like Zac a little more than I like Mia at this point, but I haven't gotten too far in yet.

The truth is, I don't want to go to Disneyland or drive a Formula 1 with Michael Schumacher. When I finally get out of this room, the last thing I want is a fuss being made over me. All I want is to get under that huge blue sky, mucking about on the farm with Dad and Evan and playing football with the guys. Even helping Bec with the animals. I just want to be outside again, like I'm supposed to be.

{Zac & Mia, pg. 48}

Synopsis of Zac & Mia:

"When I was little I believed in Jesus and Santa, spontaneous combustion, and the Loch Ness monster. Now I believe in science, statistics, and antibiotics."

So says seventeen-year-old Zac Meier during a long, grueling leukemia treatment in Perth, Australia. A loud blast of Lady Gaga alerts him to the presence of Mia, the angry, not-at-all-stoic cancer patient in the room next door. Once released, the two near-strangers can't forget each other, even as they desperately try to resume normal lives.

The story of their mysterious connection drives this unflinchingly tough, tender novel told in two voices.

  1. Awww, I can only imagine how bad she(or is it Zac?)'d want to be outside indeed. The layout of your post is so pretty. *.* Hope you'll enjoy the book till the last page!
