A dying teen learns to live in this heart wrenching debut the New York Times Book Review calls, “Funny and entertaining.”

Campbell Cooper has never been in love. And if the doctors are right, she’ll never have the chance. So when she’s told she needs a miracle, her family moves 1,500 miles north to Promise, Maine–a place where amazing, unexplainable events are said to occur–like it or not. And when a mysterious envelope arrives, containing a list of things for Cam to do before she dies, she finally learns to believe–in love, in herself, and maybe even in miracles, as improbable as they may seem.


“Funny and entertaining.” 
New York Times Book Review

“The story unfolds through narration as beautiful as ‘the sun’s everlasting gobstopper descent behind the lighthouse.'”

“A witty, clever, meaningful, kind of kooky life-sometimes-stinks-but-it’s-all-we-have tour de force.”
School Library Journal, STARRED REVIEW

“Wonderfully bittersweet, with just as much humor as sadness.”

“A funny, quirky, and uplifting novel that will stay with the reader long after one is finished reading it.”
Library Media Connection

“Some readers prefer a little whimsy and bittersweet philosophy to tear-jerking and the story of Cam’s final summer will be just what they are looking for.”
Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“This tale of romance, adventure, chasing dreams, and finding the power in home is a DO NOT MISS!”
–Justine Magazine

“Hilarious, wry, heartbreaking, and profound all at the same time.”
–Sara Shepard, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Pretty Little Liars
