Image of Zac and Mia

In this tough but tender story, Zac is that boy you can’t help but fall for. Fighting leukemia at 17, Zac is stoic, yet hilariously sarcastic. His counterpart, Mia, is feisty, though she can’t come to terms with what life has thrown at her. Together they weave a story that is heart-tugging, sweet and funny.

Everything about Zac Meier’s hospital wing is nice and quiet — until a new patient moves in next door. Voices yelling, music blaring ... Mia has arrived. After they’re both released, the teens can’t seem to forget each other. And when life takes a turn for the worse for one, the other will help fight.
